Be aware that the Fuel filter sits behind the frame rail directly below the driver's door.

The tools you will need are metric, 15, 16 and 20 mm wrenches. LOTS of rags to catch the runoff fuel. Pack the area around the tubing and the filter with rags so when you break the fittings loose, the fuel won't run down your arm and the driveway.

The bolts that hold the filter to the frame, should be sprayed with WD-40 before you start. There is one strap that holds the filter that is very tight.

There is also a wire loom that should be moved and most likely you will break the plastic holders, use your imagination with zip ties, or go by the acutal parts to relace the plastic holders.

If this is to attempt to remedy the "non-start" issue, it won't. It's the garbage fuel pump that resides in the tank. It wears prematurly, especially when you run the fuel tank low all the time.

An attempt to remedey the "non-start" issue with a new filter COULD fix the prob..just not very likely, it is most likely the pump
