2012 F250 Fuel Filter Change?

Like the title says I have a 2012 F250 with a build date of 11/11.

Bottom fuel filter no problem but the top one PITA!

After two hours of twisting I stopped before I broke something.

Anybody have a trick to get it out? I pop off the fuel lines no problem and it's a 2012 so no bolt just twist and remove correct?

I have 15000 miles on the truck and the bottom filter was nasty and I would really like to get the top one changed but it does not want to come out.

No there is a clamp that has a 7mm head on it.

Well take a look at this one.


Like I said, no bolt that I can see.

My 2012 does NOT have a bolt.
I believe only the 2011's have the bolt.
Twist the filter counter-clockwise then pull straight up.
Mine was in there pretty snug so when you pull up just wiggle it back and forth while pulling. It will come up.
Hope that helps.

My 11 f250 company truck has a 7mm bolt and my 12 f550 doesn't as well as my personal 12 f250.

When I changed my fuel filter on the 550 I had to used a big pair of channel locks to get it loose.

That's weird, my 2012 has the 7mm bolt on the top filter. I just swapped mine out a week ago at 13k miles. I looked at a few YouTube videos and it was very easy. Not sure why some '12's have them and some don't, but mine sure does!

Done!

Broke out the oil filter pliers and broke off one of the fuel line ports on the filter so no turning back now!

Wiggled it a little after turning it and it popped right out.

Next time I will start with the filter pliers and it will be a two minute job.

I have never had a problem changing my fuel filters, I know they are much easier than a Duramax!

Tuesday Build VS. a late afternoon Friday build.

There's probably a lot of truth to that!
