REMOVAL

Shut engine OFF. Depressurize fuel system, refer to Service and Repair / Fuel Pressure Relief Procedure .
Raise vehicle on hoist.
Remove fuel tube clip from stainless steel connector at forward (outlet) end of fuel filter. Remove steel push-connect fitting with fuel line disconnect tool.
Remove plastic push-connect fitting at rear (inlet) end of fuel filter.
Remove fuel filter from fuel filter bracket by either (a) pulling fuel filter toward the center of the vehicle, or (b) expand the fuel filter bracket slightly and slide the fuel filter forward and out of the bracket.
INSTALLATION

Install fuel filter in fuel filter bracket, ensuring proper direction of flow as noted by arrow (toward engine). Align seam in filter with corresponding groove in fuel filter bracket.
NOTE: The "flow" arrow direction should be positioned as installed in bracket to make sure of proper flow of fuel through the replacement filter.

Lubricate O-rings in connectors with engine automotive oil. Install push-connect fittings at both ends of filter. Install new retainer clip in plastic push-connect fitting. Pull back on connectors to ensure the connector latch is fully engaged.
Reinstall existing fuel tube clip to stainless steel push-connect fitting at forward (outlet) end of fuel filter bracket.
Lower vehicle.
START engine and check for leaks. Repair as necessary.
