I know this has been discussed here many of times. I've been haveing problems getting the fuel lines seperated from my fuel filter. I talked to a mechanic and he said that if the filter is hard to get off it most likely has some gung built up around the seal. He suggested that I spray a tiny amount of WD40 into the fuel line at the filter. Presty the filter came right off. Just make sure before you put the new filter on to wipe the fuel lines off real good just incase.
