Fuel Filters...(This may make it easier)
Did the first fuel filter change truck since new (2010 F350)...it was not a bad job thanks to the good information I got the people on this forum.
I did find one thing I thought was a little odd...like I said this was it first filter change since it was new...on both filters I was able to remove the cap completely and then pull the filter from the housing. The filters were not actually snapped in to the caps. (These were the correct original factory filters).
So on the lower filter I went ahead and slid the filter into the housing and installed the cap, this actually made installing the filter and keeping everything clean in the process much easier. The filter surface actually seals at the bottom of the housing (the clip into the cap is just suppose to make install and removal easier) but in this case it was easier to do as I did. The filter does stay aligned in the housing but I was still really careful as I was putting the cap back on.
I did not see an issue with this...as it came apart this way...and I may have stumbled across something that make thing a little easier.
If any of our experts have different opinions about doing it this way, I would like the hear them.
