Yeah, putting the filter back on is a pain in the ass if you don't do it right.

Thats why I'm somewhat scared to do it.

But,

FML if I did something wrong.

it's not that bad. Just get the fuel filter tool. I just did mine. don't give up on it. it isn't that easy to get the lines off even with the tool. just make sure you push the tool in as far as you can and pull the line out at the same time. I didn't even release the pressure I just waited overnight and did it first thing on the morning. some gas does come out if you don't release it but it isn't that bad. Good luck

you dont need to release the pressure... just turn your head when you pop off that line.. make sure you got some towels or something to clean up the fuel after you pop it off.. it kinda makes a mess. thats how i did it. but yea those lines are a mother fucker to get off

I do mine in the driveway on a pretty good slope dont know if it really helps that much but just to be safe I would make sure the front of the truck is higher that than the back so the fuel in the lines from the filter to the tank flow back into the tank.

And even if you relieve the pressure and crank the truck multiple times your gonna get splashed so put a bucket or some rags down near the area.

PS: safety goggle never hurt anybody either LOL
