No, what kind of tool do I need and where do I get it and for how much?
Expert:  Don replied 8 years ago.

You can buy the tool at any parts store (discount auto, auto zone). there are very cheap. 5-10 dollars. remove the safty clip.


slide the tool over the filter tube. the connector is a spring lock that you are pushing over the ridge on the filter tube. there are several differant styles of tools but they will all work. then push the tool into the spring to unlock.


then pull them apart.
