Like Catfiesh said, black plastic cover, it's about 6-8" wide and 18-24" long. Held in with a couple of retaining screws, doesn't have to completely come off to replace the filter. Black band around filter doesn't have to come either, just disengage the green clips (things are a bitch with big fingers) slide the filter and try not to kink the fuel lines.

Good luck! :D


Here is a pic of part of it, for some reason I didn't take any of the entire cover. It's literally the only black plastic shroud you can reach from directly under the driver's door.

Squeaze. They're pressure clips. Press hard on both sides, it'll unlatch, then slide it out. I never noticed a pop or release, they unlatched quietly. Was cursing too, pressing both fingers really hard and making mean faces far longer than I suppose I had to. :mad: :)

Definitely want to see that. I mean, I was making fun of Iowa's fuel before, but photographic evidence would be icing on the... ok, I'll stop being an asshole. :)

How many miles on your car?
