Simple to change. Push clip toward filter and down and pull filter. I changed it in less than 5 minutes. Remember to pull the fuel pump fuse before and turn key to accessory several times to prime the filter and fuel system(purge the air from the line) before you start the car after you change the filter.

Not all in box.

I feel there should have been replacement clamps for the up-scale cost. Should have been basic directions. As a Gov. purchasing manager will not allow purchase and go for less costly brand.

                              Hi Hobie, I'm glad to assist you. In order to install this Motorcraft Original Equipment (OE) Fuel Filter (Part No. FG-986B) on your vehicle, you will need a small fuel filter removal tool, which allows you to remove each line from filter, where the filter is attached to the line. When you insert new filter into line, it will click, so to let you know it is attached. Also, when you start, you will need a small screwdriver (flat tip) to remove bracket holding the filter. You have to unscrew your gas cap to relieve pressure in fuel line. Wear safety glasses, when you about to start underneath. When you remove each end of line from filter, a few ounces of gas will come out, so position a container just below to catch it.

The clips are sold separately if your existing ones are bad, the part number for the Ford fuel line retaining clips that are 5/16 inch (most common size) is #800-003.

                              A:

                              With respect to your inquiry on Motorcraft Original Equipment (OE) Fuel Filter
                              -(Part No. FG986B) the installation instruction is as follows. Find the fuel-pump switch which is located in the trunk on the driver's side, under the carpet. First unplug the switch's electrical connector start the engine and and allow it to run until it stalls out to relieve the fuel-system pressure. Turn the ignition key off then jack up the rear of the car. The fuel filter is mounted under your vehicle in front of the gas tank, next to the frame. Remove the plastic "hairpin" clips, which are located on each end of the fuel filter. This is a two-part process. Spread the two clip legs about 1/8 inch apart and then push in on them. Pull on the other end of the clip to detach it from the fitting. Remove the hoses one at a time. Pull them straight off the filter, so as to not bend the connections. With a screwdriver, loosen the clamp holding the fuel filter. Remove the filter, making note of the direction it's facing. Install new one in the same direction as the old one. Most new filters have arrows on them to indicate the direction of fuel flow. The arrow should be pointing toward the front of the car. Replace both hoses carefully onto new fuel filter. Re-install the hairpin clips--be sure that the clips are attached securely. Re-tighten the clamp. Reconnect the fuel switch's electrical connection.

                              Once you have removed the safety clip, slide the fuel line away from the filter so you have got enough room to insert the disconnect tool. You have to slide the filter partially out of the bracket to gain access. Push the tool in to the fuel line (away from the filter) and listen/feel for a click to indicate you have disengaged the locking device from the filter. Once you have disengaged, pull the line away from the filter. Try to move the fuel line so that it is raised to minimize fuel leakage from there as well. There is this locking device within the fuel lines. Note the "teeth." These are springs that lock on the raised flange of the fuel filter. When you insert the tool to disconnect, you are pressing in on these springs. For any further assistance please feel free to call 1-877-238-2623 and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
