How do you change a fuel filter on F150 2004 New Style.
Can someone help me to figure out how to change a fuel filter on a 2004 F150 New Style Truck with a 5.4 L V8? I bought the part, located the old one, found the power pigtail that I have to unplug, but I have no idea how to get the gas lines off of the filter. In the old days, you'd pry up a clip that would then release the fitting from the filter. The new system doesn't even look like the old.
The Ford dealer wants $70 to change a filter, so I'd rather do it myself. Can someone tell me how to get this apart, and if I need a tool, where can I get it? I asked at the local auto parts place, and he handed me something that said Ford on it, but no one could vouch for how to use it, or even if it was the right one.
