Totally a noob, question, all my vehicles in the past have had fuel filters with nuts on both sides (giggity). The impala only has one nut (what a pity) and what seems to be a plastic clip deal. How does this work? Oh and yes the fuel filter has been replaced, before, but never by me, but it's time again and I have time to do it. Thanks!

Sounds like you need the fuel line quick disconnect adapters. Check out your local parts store. They look something like this...

As far as the plastic attachment, I beleive you just pinch it to release that end from the line.

Been a while since I changed mine myself though, so I could be wrong. I let the dealer do it while it was in for other service.

I went to do mine last weekend, but the fuel lines are so rusted I think I'm going to lose a fuel line once I attempt.

Screw off the nut...

...and I just use my hands to squeeze the clip off. I don't think I've ever used a specialized tool for it - maybe a pair of needlenose pliers, but that's it.

Well it appears that it will be a pretty easy task, I don't think I need to worry about the nut being stuck, It was changed like 6 months ago. But like always i will lube the area up with some liquid wrench and hope that everything slips in and out easily. But what are these quick connect adaptor things? Do I really need these things?

I don't think you need to buy a quick disconnect unless you break the one that's already on your car.

I thought there was a how-to written up on here:::EDIT::: here:

Remember to release fuel line pressure from the schrader valve under the hood beforehand, and have your smoke after you're all done. Laughing

It's much easier and less messy to just pull the fuel pump fuse and crank the engine a few times to relieve the pressure.

Hmm, If I can figure out which fuse it is, that sounds like a good plan. I would hate to have all the pressure in the lines, and have it spray all over when I go to bust the nut loose.

Umm, look on the covers on the underhood fuse box??? Pull either the fuel pump fuse or fuel pump relay.

Start the engine and let it die.

When you loosen the nut, there will be plenty of fuel coming out, but it wont be under pressure. I would definitely recommend moving your body from under the car when you disconnect the filter to avoid getting soaked.
