Any how to's on changing the fuel filter mounted on the frame under the drivers seat? Do those hoses just pull of or is there a trick or tool to remove them? thank you.

No tool needed

Compress the green and orange part with finger and pull line away

Relieve the pressure in the fuel system by removing the fuel pump fuse and start the truck wait till it dies then proceed

That sounds about right! I did that on my gf's 02 escape....just watch out for a little puddle of gas to come out when you do pop off the filter. the only reason I mention that is I got it in the face...ugh...

Yeah unless you have weak fingers the tools a joke and not needed. I never remove the pump fuse or run it till it dies.


Just take the cap off the gas tank slide under remove the three lines take old filter out put new in reconnect the lines put the cap back on the tank and your good to go.
