Be sure to relieve the fuel pressure prior to removing the filter.escaperun44 said:How do you change the fuel filter on the 2008 escape? I can get the clips off, but the hoses do not want to seem to come off the filter. Any tricks or am I missing a step?
It's not a fancy tool. It is a spring lock tool, which you can get a version like this about anywhere locally with automotive tools for $5-$10.escaperun44 said:ah a tool. that's what i thought. well, guess i'll give my mechanic a call and let him handle it.
Did you use a small screwdriver to pull up and release the white plastic clips off the lines before you pulled on them?victajay said:I'm trying to change my fuel filter and when I pull the 24 fuel pump fuse the vechile dies right away. I could not get the lines off, Iwent and got the tool and still cannot remove the lines. Am I not able to remove them due to pressue? Thanks
