At 10k miles I changed the fuel filter as a precaution against any manufacturing debris etc in the tank. I broke 2 of the 3 cheap a** clips. I tie-wrapped the 2 broken clips in place.

Car runs fine and no apparent gas leaks.

Is this car drivable for a quick run to Kragen or Ford parts? I dont want to be a fireball or cited for any fuel spills.

Thanks!

if you are confident in your zip ties then maybe, what style of clip is on the 05 I know the 00-04 had a white clip you squeeze together and push through to the other side? ford also uses a red slip that works the same but it had a tab that fold over to lock it in place

$5.24 each at the Ford dealer for the little clips - didnt they used to come with the filter?

All is fixed and I like to think it does idle smoother, makes me feel better. [:)] [:)]

I read that before I posted actually.
But I still don't know where the filter is located.
