Additional info, if you need it:

Removal

WARNING: BECAUSE OF THE COMBUSTION CHARACTERISTICS OF GASOLINE, ALWAYS USE EXTREME CARE WHEN REMOVING AND INSTALLING ANY FUEL SYSTEM COMPONENT.

1. Depressurize the fuel system as outlined under Fuel System Pressure Relief.
2. Raise vehicle on hoist. Refer to Section 00-02.
3. Remove the push connect fittings at both ends of the fuel filter and base as outlined. Install new retainer clips in each push connect fitting.
4. Remove fuel filter and base from bracket by loosening worm gear clamp. Note the direction of the flow arrow as installed in the bracket to ensure proper direction of fuel flow through replacement fuel filter and base .

Installation

1. Install the fuel filter and base into the bracket, ensuring the proper direction of flow.
2. Tighten worm gear clamp to 1.7-2.8 Nm (16-24 lb-in).
3. Install the push connect fittings onto the fuel filter and base ends as outlined.
4. Lower vehicle.
5. Start engine and check for leaks.

its really simple, just make sure the new filter comes with the line clips, and if it doesnt, be careful removing the old ones so you can reuse them. It's just 2 bolts, the hose clamp, and the line clips and its out. Really simple. I open my gas cap to release any pressure.

Mine has the nylon line clips on one end and the sucky connectors that require the special tool on the other end. How does removing the gas cap release fuel line pressure?

hell if I know thats just what they make us do at Jiffy Lube when doing a fuel filter so it was kind of a subconscious act. I dont really think it does anything since you're just releasing tank pressure, not the pressure the pump has built, but whatever.

Sorry man. After taking another look at my post I see it came off kinda rude. I was just curious if there was any specific purpose for pulling the cap since I've never done it. Normally I don't even release the pressure at the rail either, just let that stuff spray and drip! :) Have you ever ran into any mn12s that have a hose clamp on the front of the filter rather than the "quick release" special tool connections? Thanks

Yup, my 3.8 has the clips on both ends and the 5.0 has the "not-so-quick release" connectors.

lol yeah gotta love the quick-release connections. Maybe the quick connect is a v8 thing. I can't remember what my 92 LS w 3.8 had. Good info though. Thanks!
