Hi, below are the steps, thanks

  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.

  1. Remove the push connect fittings at both ends of the fuel filter (9155) as described. Install new retainer clips in each push connect fitting.

  1. Remove fuel filter from fuel filter bracket (9A335) by loosening worm gear clamp. Note the direction of the flow arrow as installed in the fuel filter to make sure proper direction of fuel flow through replacement fuel filter.
