Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

Well there is a sock inside the tank and there is a in-line filter. The in-line filter looks like >>THIS<< and you don't need any tools to replace it.. You shouldn't have to remove anything just follow this:

FUEL FILTER

The fuel filter mounts to the top of the fuel tank. The inlet and outlet tubes are permanently attached to the filter Fuel Filter

WARNING: RELEASE FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE BEFORE DISCONNECTING QUICK-CONNECT FITTINGS AT FUEL FILTER. REFER TO THE FUEL PRESSURE RELEASE PROCEDURE.

REMOVAL

  1. Perform fuel system pressure release.
  2. Disconnect quick-connect fittings from fuel pump module and chassis fuel supply tube.
  3. Remove filter retaining screw Fuel Filter and remove filter from tank.

INSTALLATION

  1. Install fuel filter to tank.
  2. The fuel supply (to filter) tube, return tube (to pump module) and fuel supply (to chassis fuel line) are permanently attached the fuel filter. The ends of the fuel supply and return tubes have different size quick-connect fittings.
  3. Apply a light coating of clean 30 weight engine oil to the fuel filter nipples. Install fuel tubes.
