Fuel filter V-10

Would like to replace fuel filter on my 2009 sun seeker 2300. V-10 engine.
Have googled and searched, found nothing. Can't even find where the filter is! Are there any special tools needed to do this? Thanks in advance.

Yes there are special tools typically needed and it is easy to break the connector. In my case, I decided to have it changed at a Havoline lube center near my home that had the proper tools. It is located below the rig not far from the engine near the frame rail. There are some YouTube videos that show the procedure.

Here's a video on how to make the 'special tool' to release the quick connect fittings on a Ford fuel filter.

A Sharpie Pen will be harmed in this procedure.

Good write-up at Good Sam Club Open Roads Forum: Changing fuel filter on Ford E series and it has pictures of the tool. Think of the tool to release a quick couple on a air line if there wasn't as sleeve to pull it back. DON'T try to release with a screwdriver or you will be up a brown smelly creek.

My '07 it is located on left side about the door or slightly behind up on the frame rail. I took of a heat shield to give me a little extra room.

I got mine at NAPA and they listed two, one longer and the other shorter and fatter. Might want to measure the length of yours first.

Seems as if the tool came with it but they are only a few bucks to buy.

You tube should have several videos for removal.

Release tools are cheap, available at most parts stores as part of a set. I think even Sears has them. Might as well own it as you will need it more than once.

Anyone know how to release the fuel pressure before replacing the filler. I would have to drive the MH home to replace then drive it back the same day, so letting it sit is no an option.

Should be a Schrader valve on the fuel rail that you can press. Also remove gas cap. Remove the fuel pump fuse and start engine, it will run for a few seconds. A golf tee till fit in the fuel line to help plug it.

Easyist way, remove fuel pump relay in underhood fuse and relay panel. Start engine and run tell it dies. Try to restart twice and you will have no fuel pressure left. Remove and reinstall gas cap to relieve any pressure in tank before disconnecting fuel filter.
