How To: Remove and Install Fuel Filter VIDEO

Whats up fellow Cobalt owners, so I changed the fuel filter on my 2007 Chevy Cobalt Ls today and I noticed that there are great write ups and a few pictures but there are No videos on how to do it. I always look online to try to fix things my self and I have gained a lot of useful information, therefore I decided to pay it forward and help out some fellow members that may be having trouble with this. I MADE a VIDEO where I explain step by step what you need to do in order to install the new one. It also tells you what tools will be needed for the process to be completed. That being said, I hope you guys enjoy my first youtube video ever and hopefully it will help plenty of people out there.

Tools Needed: -10mm ratchet/wrench - 3/8" Fuel line disconnect tool

Thanks for the support you guys... and for both of the members that will soon do their fuel filter change, if you guys have any questions or anything, feel free to contact me. Its pretty simple, I thought it was going to be a bit more complicated but its not bad at all. The shop was trying to charge me $160 to install it. I decided to do it my self and purchased the AC Delco filter for $69 and paid $3.49 for the quick release tool. Therefore it gives you good savings and its fun work =D

cool to know that man... I really like those clamps because they are convenient/easy to use and it seems like they grip on things pretty tight which is good because sometimes they come up with some flimsy ways of attaching things.
