Default Need help Changing Fuel filter 2002 Ford Ranger

Hi I need help Changing Fuel filter on my 2002 Ford Ranger. I am reading here that you push in on the orange and green clips. Looks like I do not need a disconnect tool like I use on my Mustang. Could some one here please explain in detail on how to disengage these green and orange clips, I do not want to break them and have to Replace fuel lines. Please help, Thanks so much Wedge

you'll need a 5/16 fuel line disconnect tool available at any parts store for about 4 dollars

slide the tool into the clips on the end of the filter and the filter will fall off in your hand

very quick and easy
