    Hi

    You're doing a nice job here and I wish I had found the site before I embarked on changing my 94 Accord fuel filter. This was a real nightmare and not only have I spent day and 1/2 but the end result was that I've put all back together, without changing the filter.

    The real problem was the lower flare nut at the bottom of the filter that I could not open, even though I've removed all possible tubing around it short of opening the brake lines.

    I'll make another attempt after the temperatures warm-up a bit and I'll get the tools recommended in the article here, by John Wade..

    Thanks to you and all the other replies, but I need some details on how have you done it. The access from the bottom while might work and has the details, is extra work and not so convenient to work.

    I would like to know what kind of wrench(es) (any special) you've used. Someone suggested PB spray, what's is. I've tried to use "liquid wrench" but it did not help. Also possible I need to leave the filter in place in it's holder to get more leverage. I've tried to use two wrenches like Honda manual suggest an in kind of scissor motion to open. ( use it when working on my bicycle hub and it works. But not here.

    So if someone give a reply I would really appreciate the details, this is why I'm on this site. I've done it in 45 minutes, from the top and use some PB (?) spray is not sufficient for me, since I'm just regular guy who tries to save money (plus immensely enjoys) doing my own work.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Hoda Accord 94, fuel filter replacement.

    Thanks. Did you access it from the top of the engine compartment or from trhe bottom like suggested elsewhere? I do'nt have ths tool but intend to get one. I'm not sure if the 14 MM Crowfoot socket is long enough to get on the nut from the top and open it there, since the filter body is in the way?
