It's been a while, but doesn't the fuel line go through the main tunnel? If so, that's a problem. You may need to run a replacment steel fuel line INSIDE the vehicle, along the floor and out through the back. Be careful that you don't run it anywhere that it might rub against a sharp or moving object, then use some kind of bedding material that will keep it from moving around and rubbing against the body.

How do you replace the fuel filter located on a 1999 VW Beetle gasoline?

VERY CAREFULLY - If you break the quick disconnects on the fuel lines it will cost you a fortune!!! 500.00 + because they have to string NEW FUEL LINES. - I have replaced the fuel filter a couple of times - I have a 2000 beetle with a 1.8 Turbo. The fuel lines are pressurized so you will need to relieve the pressure before you try and remove the filter or you will get a face full of gas. The filter comes off by pushing the fuel line toward the filter and then pushing the quick release button on the fuel line. The fuel line should then decouple - the filter lives under the car near the right rear tire (just in front) Good luck and be careful

How do you replace an in line fuel filter?

To replace an inline fuel filter you will need to purchase a fuel line release tool available at most auto parts stores. It looks like a cone shaped sleeve with a split down one side. Choose the appropriate size for your fuel line, slide it over the fuel line, press cone shaped side into the connector towards the fuel filter while gently pulling the fuel line away from the filter. You may want to have a drain pan nearby to catch the excess fuel that will spill out when you release the fuel line from the filter
