Ok, so the fuel filter on a Toyota Tacoma
is right underneath the driver side door. It’s this guy right here. It’s right next
to the transfer case. So basically all you got to do is unscrew these bolts. There are
two; one on either side. And get this bracket off and just slide the new one into place.
So once you get this bolt undone, remember that the gas line is under pressure so it’s
going to let out probably about half a cup of gas. Just be ready for that. And then as
you can see on this side of it, the person who did this before me kind of stripped that
nut. So what I’m going to try to do right now is get a 19mm wrench on this end on the
black part of it and a 14mm end on that and see if I can just twist them apart. Hopefully
that way works. I got this end pulled out here easier. There’s less of it sticking
inside the filter. So that pulled that end out and then the whole thing just slid apart.
Then next thing you got to make sure is the arrow on the filter is always pointing away
from the gas tank so it’s filtering the fuel from the tank and spitting it out into
the engine. So I’m going to pop this end first and then the other end and then just
bracket it in just like it was before. There you go. All installed and ready to go.
