fuel filter rage!!!! pleeeeze help!!!!

stupid fuel filter was nearly impossible to get off!
now theres a new problem the screw is stripped soo the new one wont go on!!!!! i have to re thread the fuel line screw buti cant find the die kit that has the right size and not a single hardware store carries it!!!!!!!!

maybe i measured it wrong? 14mm 1.75 threading? does that sound right?? no one carried a 1.75, but i see it might be the 1.5 threading???

i cant put the old one on because it cracked when i was trying to get it off!!! wtf im sooo upset can anyone pleease help i swear i will light this car on fire if another problem turns up! :(

Nahh doesn't need to be lined up; the inside of the "banjo" is hollow all the way around so fuel can get to the hole in the bolt however.

So the inlet of the filter is stripped? Just get a new filter if you don't feel like tapin it, they're cheap enough. Or return yours, say its the wrong one.

Re: fuel filter rage!!!! pleeeeze help!!!!

nooo its the fuel line itself!!! im going to have to replace it! ugh! the stupid die for rethreading it wont work, so im going to cut the flare off and replace the screw. :( fml. this car is nothing but problems! i might as well go aftermarket fuel lines but idk how much that would cost all together.
