I'm replacing the fuel filter on a 2002 Avalanche.

Is their anything special that I need to do before starting the job, or can I just remove the filter and replace?

Thanks - Frank

Very easy to do...I forget the wrench size, but you will see how easy it was after you finish doing it.

Thanks!

The job took me about 30 minutes.  Grin

 I did notice that if you happen to get some gas on the undercoating it tends to wipe away. So be careful.   banghead

The fuel filter is easy to change.  Sometimes it helps to remove the gas cap.  This will relieve some of the pressure in the tank if there is any.

 lossen bracket and remove lines & filter. check O rings on lines
drain fuel from old filter remove from bracket. insert new filter in bracket (check flow direction is correct)
install lines back on (do not cross thread!! it takes some work to get them on correct) install bracket bolts (2) one of those is a PITA
