99 fuel filter

hey i have a 99 Mustang that needs a fuel filter installed. .. my repair book shows a completely different set up than what i actually have (the book shows a filter with plastic clips and my filter is just stuffed into the lines on either side, no clips) anyhow, what i need is advice or good tricks to get the thing outta there.
thanks!!
Jill

Re: 99 fuel filter

you need the clips to help take the filter off. They push in and hold retaining clips back so the filter can come out. The new filter should just "click" in.

Go to a local autoparts store and buy the tool for it. They should be able to tell you the size, I forget what size it is as I have a full set.

And make sure you put that little clamp thing back on them after you are done.
