It looks like a real bear of a job for me to replace it myself so I was planning on taking it in. Anyone know how much this would cost for a garage to replace? If the rest of the line is alright can it be patched?
Thanks for your help.
I can only give you a hint.
When I changed my '04, F-150 fuel filer I broke the top of the blue retainer clip on my gas line at the inlet end of my fuel filter. I attempted to buy only that section of the gas line, about a foot long, that would contain a new blue clip. My local Ford Dealership parts guy took pains to computer up what I wanted. It ended up that I would have to purchase the complete gas and vapor lines (Part #9C052) from gas tank to fuel filter, $136.00. Since my blue clip was only partially borken and still aided in griping my fuel filter inlet tube I passed on the purchase of the fuel/vapor lines.
I suspect you may run into the same over-buy headache I did.
