Fuel Filter replacement

Hello... a friend of mine has a leaky fuel filter in her '95 YJ... so i was wondering how you get those lil metal clips off the rubber lines it connects to and what size nut is used in the bracket(i looks like 10mm but i didnt have a 10 mm socket on me)

any other tips and tricks for the replacement would be helpful... thanks in advance

p.s. if this has been asked before im sorry i searched and found nothing

I hit the exact same problem on those clamps. I just fought with them and mangled them up pretty good, then just put the screw down type on there. I also replaced the rubber hose.

mine just had regular ol' hose clamps... loosen them with a 1/4" socket or a flathead screwdriver and a lil twisting and some pulling and walaa, fuel filter falls off and fuel goes everywhere....


i think the bolt was a 10mm but i can't remember... don't you have a socket set? if not, go to sears

My 95 ust had hose clamps. As mentioned, a socket or flat-head will do the trick. Other tips and tricks, release pressure from the system through the schrader valve on the fuel rail and the gas cap. Also, dont lay under the filter when removing. That little can holds a lot of fuel.

Well if it still has those factory clamps, a socket won't help. You'll need to put a flat head screwdriver in there and just mangle them up.

How about buying the correct tool to do the job????

Bought a fuel line clamp removal tool that worked great (on my 2000 ranger anyways). Looks like an "X"...

That costs money, and it'll never get used again.

I agree on the whole costs money point, but I'm going to leave you on your own with the never used again part. I know I've swapped my filter more than once. Destroy thos crazy clamps and pick up some standard hose clamps.

What I am saying is that if there is a tool available to remove those factory crimpings, it is probably not worth the money because they aren't going back on. I will certainly change my fuel filter numerous times, but I have since installed the normal screw down type crimpings so that a screw driver/ratchet can tighten them down.

The factory crimpings will come off with enough intention, then you never have to use them again.

less than $10 , why wouldn't he use it to change filter in future?

and you won't be redneck hacking it by using a screwdriver.
