Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
The lower fuel line clip can accessed from underneath the vehicle.
-Have you removed the battery and tray?
-What else have you already tried?
WARNING: Do not smoke or carry lighted tobacco or an open flame of any type when working on or near any fuel related component. Highly flammable mixtures are always present and may be ignited, resulting in possible personal injury.
WARNING: Fuel in the fuel system remains under high pressure even when the engine is not running.
WARNING: Before repairing or disconnecting any of the fuel lines or fuel system components, the fuel system pressure must be relieved.
What i've tried: I tried removing the battery tray last night, found a rusted bolt that is stuck (rusted and stripped). Will try again tonight with a bolt extractor.
This is what you're telling me:
1) access the lower fuel line from underneath the car
2) access the upper fuel line after removing the battery and battery tray.
Thank you for the reply,
Yes, that is correct. I understand this is very frustrating, so much work for such a small repair, I would also recommend wearing a long sleeve shirt, or long gloves (to save your skin from scrapes and cuts reaching in there to grab that filter).
Make sure the fuel pressure is relieved as well before removal, (refer to instructions in previous post).
