Does after an hour at my dealership to change my fuel filter they said that they could not find it and it must be in the tank. Does anyone know if they did away with the fuel filter for 04 my 03 had it mounted on the frame rails? Can it be replaced?

Wow that is so cool for the 04, no gb light, no under hood light, only 1 light in cargo area, no lights under the dash and no lock on the console. that is just great now they put a simple fuel filter in the gas tank why would they want to do something like that, so no one would steel it  barf

Maybe someone with a 2004 owners manual could check, but I believe there is no scheduled maintenence on your fuel filters. Hopefully one of our resident techs or engineers could enlighten us.

They also took the rubber rub strips off the roof rack rails. I bought them from my service dept. and put them back. In fact I'm putting back everything  they took off my '04.

Are these supposed to go under the anchor points on the rails?  what purpose would they serve?
