Question Anyone change their fuel filter or cabin air filter?

I have an '04 F150 w/ 5.4 engine. Where are these filters and are they difficult to replace?

I changed mine same as year as yours. I dont THINK theres cabin filter at all.

I can be wrong.

just BE CAREFUL with blue clip..do not overforce to pull blue clip.. its piece of cake. It took me about 5 mins job. so be expect some gas spill.

Is that filter along the frame rail somewhere or back near the tank?

As mentioned before, we don't have a cabin filter. I wish they wouldn't put that in our owner's manual!! Fuel filter is on the driver's rail. IF you have 4x4, it's next to the transfer case. There is a good article on the site about replacing your fuel filter. I wish I had reviewed it before I changed mine. Would have saved $18.00 for a new clip

there's a special tool (autozone) to disconnet the the fuel filter lines, works great, once you figure out how to use the tool........

There is no cabin air filter in an 04. The fuel filter is under the driver side conntected to the frame. You need the special tool to disconnect the couplings. If you screw it up you will be buying a new fuel line to the engine, and it will cost you some $$$!!!

Actually, Kevin, the dealerships now have just the clips so you don't have to buy the entire line. $16 for a pair of clips! Pink instead of blue, but you can get just the clips. Don't let any dealership tell you you can't...

All I said was use the right tool or you will be buying a fuel line!
