Unhappy 2000 GT Fuel Filter Removal

Hey guys and gals. I was doing a routine tune up to my 2000 Mustang GT yesterday, and I was trying to remove the fuel filter. I removed the metal retainer clips but I could not disconnect the hoses from the filter. Is there a special tool that I should be using? I pulled quite hard, but I did not want to damamge any thing. Your help is appreciated.

I am pretty sure you need a special tool for the fords. I tried it on a new truck and it would not come out. I brought it to my friends shop and he had it off in i minute. Try bringing it to a shop they probably will charge you 5 dollars.

I just got back from Auto Zone. My bro transfered there after Discount Auto screwed him after 4 years of service.. he got a better schedule and $4000 more a year... good deal. Anyway, on the '00, it doesnt have the plastic pop-offs like my 95. It has to connectors that you can buy or rent a special tool from Auto parts store and it pushes the connectors together and pops off. Confusious say like chineese finger trap. "the more you pull the less you get, like import, front wheel drive pull car, get nowhere. rear wheel car push get far fast."

Default fuel filter

Remember to release the fuel pressure in the line before you take it off or it will spray fuel.... Not a fun mess. Let me know how it goes, i have a 2001 and have to change mine at the next oil change.

Hey guys. It was really easy with the tool. 10 minute job max including the time to jack up the car. I released the fuel pressure from the line by disconnecting power to the fuel pump and running the car until it stalled. However, the fuel filter still had quite a bit of fuel in it. Beware when you disconnect the line...fuel will spill out.

Thanks to all!

Yeah me and my budy broke the fuel line on an 86 camaro iroc. It was the cheap car's fault.
