Hello, and thanks for using JA!!! I have included the instructions for the fuel filter!!
I hope this info was helpfull!!!
The fuel filter is located under the rear of the car, rearward of the fuel tank. There is no service interval for the fuel filter replacement. Replacement is required only if the fuel filter becomes restricted.
Important: Always maintain cleanliness when servicing fuel system components.
Important: There is no service interval for in-pipe fuel filter replacement. Only replace the in-pipe fuel filter if it is restricted.
Caution: Always apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe ends before connecting the fuel pipe fittings in order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury. This will ensure proper reconnection and prevent a possible fuel leak. During normal operation, the O-rings located in the female connector will swell and may prevent proper reconnection if not lubricated.
Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Tighten Use back up wrench to prevent filter, O-ring or fuel line damage and tighten fitting to 27 N·m (20 lb ft).
Squeeze the plastic retainer release tabs.
you can try using a small flatblade screwdriver, like a pocket screw driver to unlatch the plastic lock from line!!!
