How to Change the Fuel Filter on a Jeep Wrangler


If your vehicle is not getting enough quality gas to the engine, it might be time to change that fuel filter. These simple step by step instructions with images will show you how. Tools Used: Tools, Flat head screwdriver, Small container or cup (less than 8 oz) to catch any gas.

Change the Fuel Filter

This is the location of the fuel filter in my ’95 Jeep Wrangler. The view is from the back, driver’s side. The best way to get to the fuel filter is to get under the Jeep from in front of the back driver’s side tire. It is mounted on the inside of the frame. You will have to loosen the straps buy using a flat head screw driver on both sides of the fuel filter. Unscrew the strap in the middle holding the filter to the frame. Once the straps are loose, get out the the way, because some gas will leak when you pull the filter out. Pull the tubes off of each side of the fuel filter and replace it with a new one. Reverse the instructions.

Tips & Warnings: Watch out that the gas does not get on you!
