Fuel Filter

I want to change out the fuel filter in my 1995 F-150 4x4. I noticed
that the filter has a clip on each end. Do you remove the filter by
removing the clips and pulling the gas line off of each end. I would
appreciate any help or advice.

You need the release tool. A few bucks at any auto parts store.

From what year on?? On my 2000, you can pull the clips out with a needle
nose pliers. The new filter came with the clips.

Exactly. If it has two plastic clips, just take them out and the lines will
slide off the filter. Usually the new filter includes new clips. If your
filter doesn't come with clips, you probably want to get some. I have
reused those clips, but I've also had them break when removing them.
Nothing more frustrating than having to go back to the parts store for a
twenty-five cent part.

Be advised, even with the correct tool, those little clips can be a real
pain in the ass to remove...

No, you don't. You're thinking about a different kind of connection.

That's exactly how it was on my 1990 BroncoII. IIRC my 1993 F-150
(4x2) is the same.

In 1998, you still need the plastic tool. :-)

Re: Fuel Filter

Methinks you're mistaken. I've done fuel filters on Ford cars or trucks of
just about every year in the 90's. I've never needed the spring release
tool. they all have had those plastic clips.
