REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Using the special tool supplied with the fuel filter kit, or service tool SA9157E, disengage the spring-lock coupler fitting by installing the tool onto the male end of the fuel line at the connector.
To aid in the disengagement procedure, it may be necessary to spray the female cavity end of the connector with penetrating oil to remove any debris.
- Using hand pressure on the tool, firmly pull the tool into the connector until it has become fully inserted. Once this has happened, pull the filter hose away from the fuel rail line.
- Lubricate the steel male fuel line end with clean engine oil.
- Firmly push on the female end of the spring-lock coupler until a click is heard or felt, then pull back on the fitting to confirm a positive engagement.
