Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
Disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel filter. Have a drain pan handy to catch any residual fuel once the lines are separated. On newer models, disconnect the fuel lines from the filter as follows:
Disconnect the safety clip from the male hose.
Install and push the fuel line disconnect tool into the female fitting.
Separate the male and female fittings.
Inspect the fuel lines for any damage after the fuel is finished draining.
Remove the fuel filter from the bracket and the retainer, if equipped. Note the direction of the flow arrow so the replacement filter can be installed correctly.
Position the fuel filter into the mounting bracket with the flow arrow pointing in the correct direction.
Install the fuel lines to the fuel filter. On newer models, align and push the male tube into the female fitting until a click is heard. Pull on the fitting to ensure that it is fully engaged, then install the safety clip.
Lower the vehicle to the ground.
When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the PCM relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles (16 km) or more to relearn the strategy.
Connect the negative battery cable.
