What is so special about the fuel pump electrical connector found under back seat and disconnecting them? Do I have to do this for my G3?
This is great - thanksReal easy. Just change it anyways. It can't hurt. Its a good thing to do even if you change it too much.
Don't remove you back seat and unplug that connector. Its a waste of time. Don't use crescent wrenches either.
This is a 10min job, yes gas may spill a little. No big deal. Put a rag under the fuel filter to catch it.
First use a 17mm to break to upper banjo bolt loose and remove it. Next break the line loose under the filter. Then use a 10mm to loosen the hold down around the filter. Remove filter and replace. Just make sure to use the new gaskets on your banjo bolt.
When its all back together cycle the key on and off(don't start it yet) a few times to let the fuel pump prime and fill the filter and lines back up and then start the car.
Hey, I started this thread 9 yrs ago - during this time my car also added 60k miles - I forgot about changing again at 30k or so interval!30k for me...you can of course go longer with OEM fuel filters
Does the Honda part come in a box or package?30k for me...you can of course go longer with OEM fuel filters
Go to the dealership and buy it if you're wanting it to be OEM.Does the Honda part come in a box or package?
I bought one on Amazon and cancelled it - 2 reviewers question OEM - no box.
One said it didn;t fit Honda Civic.
But on eBay it is still not in box - sold by dealerships.
