Fuel Filter Replacement

Got a fuel filter from autozone duralast brand it has a tiny plastics piece inside the part that connects to the metal fuel line I'm wondering if it was needed I took it out and installed the filter and there are no leaks but I'm wondering if this piece was a part of the filter.

the plastic piece a part of the part. Its supposed make it easier to disconnect when the time comes to replace it again.


Also please put a "?" in the Title line so we can know you are asking a question.

If the car is in run and it isn't leaking, you should be okay. Just make sure the line doesn't pull out or pop off under pressure. I switched back to the Delco on the last replacement, but I remember something similar when I got a Duralast the previous time.

It hasn't so far I drove to work and back 50 miles round trip no leaks but I think I'm gonna take it out and put that plastic piece in just to be safe since I am doing the spark plugs today too. Thanks guys.

I haven't replaced mine yet (coming soon) but the video tutorial I saw looked super easy.

They can be super easy or an absolute nightmare if the connectors fill with rust
