Icon10 Fuel filter installed on 5th Gen - done

Sup guys, just wanted to share my experience with installing my new fuel filter on my 5th gen Lude. I know people say how much of a pain in the azz it is to do the job and that made me want to just bring it to the stealership, but I ended up saying fug it and bought a 14mm crows foot and tackled the job. Took about an hour and a half, the hardest part was getting the stupid bracket to thread back on once the filter was in place. I deff feel good cause they would of charged an arm and a leg to do the job and prolly find something else wrong with my car lol. Hope this brings some inspiration to the next person who wants to do the job on their own, oh my lude has 164,000 miles on her and now she's equipped with a shiny new fuel filter lol. Peace out

How ironic..

I literally was about to do the same thing Thursday. I bought a oem filter from honda, read how pita it was, tried it anyways, got the fuel line off, bracket off, and couldn't figure out a way to take the filter off lol. Tried underneath the car, couldn't get to it, and from the top i couldn't get to it. From the bottom, the wrench was too shirt and from the top the wrench was too long lol..

After being fed up, I put everything back together and took it to honda just to see what it would cost.. Yeah, wasn't paying that. Ha

Did you use a regular crows foot? Or a flared one?.. I'm guessing you had extensions and not just a wrench ha.. Did you get it from the bottom or top?

I'm going to tackle this thing again once I get the right tool.. I'm assuming a crows foot that will latch on socket wrench with extensions.. Am I right?

I went to Autozone and got a regular crows foot kit and used a regular 14 mm one. I had to go under the car to get to the line and had to use a bunch of extensions with the crows foot on the end. My bolt was on tight but I got it eventually loose and let the gas leak out, not much came out which was good cause I didn't know how much would leak out which kinda scared me lol.

Re: Fuel filter installed on 5th Gen - done

Did it.. Wasnt too hard with the right tools.. I got it from the top. used a long crows foot.

Honda quoted me at about $65 an hour and said it would take about 3-4 hours to do (LOL! -- I did it in less than 45 minutes) so you do the math. Ridiculous. They said they would have to "unbolt the intake manifold and remove a lot more other things to get to it.." I literally laughed (ok, slightly chuckled) in their face. That doesnt include all the other unnecessary junk they would more than likely hit me with that needed replaced, fixed, changed, etc.. There's a reason why we call it the 'stealership'
