2008 LT fuel filter removal problem
Hi everyone. New here. I have a 2008 LT, 170,000 km and yesterday I tried to remove the fuel filter. The car has been rustproofed quite a bit , so everything is caked with rustproofing.
Anyways.It also may be the original fuel filter in the car. I had no problem removing the two lines that have the tabs. I just cant seem to get the single metal line out. I am using one of those cheap 3/8 plastic disconnect tools. When I put the plastic tool over the line.... is the tool supposed to go all the way in the filter?. For me its only barely going about half way into the filter....so maybe there is dirt,rust in the filter line?. Still cant get it to come off. Am I supposed to push the line into the filter and then push the connector tool inside?
I wanted to get a metal disconnect tool instead of a plastic one...but cant find the metal one in my area.
Thanks for any tips.
