    I'm changing my fuel filter right now and I loosened the fuel line connections so that they slide freely now and loosened the mounting bracket. Do I just have to pull the fuel line out of the filter then? It seems like it would take a good pull to do so and I don't want to bend the line. Advice?

    i did mine maybe a month ago and i was real nervous about pulling on it and stuff but i just yanked it out. when you put the new one in just make sure everything is aligned real good and i would just tighten things a little at a time and make sure everything was goin in well. but it didnt and i think i cross threaded it and the first time i started my truck it leaked a little but i just tightened it a little more and it stopped.

    gonna be a real bitch next time i mess with it

    good luck tho it really shouldnt be that hard

    I got it out easier after I took the mounting bracket bolt off completely. Changed the filter, started it up it sputtered at first but idles good and doesn't even leak lol.
