HiCustomer



Thank you for the reply,

No, they are regular thread, and yes it would be easier to pull out from the underside of the vehicle.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
