NOTE: If vehicle has been operated within an hour, the fuel system is probably under pressure and requires caution when removing filter union bolts.


  1. Locate the fuel filter on the right side of the engine.
  2. Slowly loosen the filter union bolts. Some gasoline may escape, so ensure that the potential for fire is minimized.
  3. Remove the union bolts and four gaskets.
  4. Loosen filter clamp and slip filter from clamp.


  1. Slip new filter into clamp. Ensure that flow arrows are in the correct direction.
  2. Position filter in the middle of the clamp and tighten filter clamp.

Replacing The Fuel Filter

  1. Reinstall both union bolts with four new gaskets.
  2. Torque union bolts to 18 Nm (13 ft lbs) . DO NOT overtighten union bolts.
  3. Clean any gasoline that may have escaped.
  4. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.



Hope this helps....Thank You
