Replace Fuel Filter on a Volvo 740 Tips

Ready to Replace Fuel Filter?

I recently changed out the filter on my 240 which has the same set up. I had the thing in and out about 5 times before I got it right. When you to get it out put that fuel line that connects to the filter and the pump on while you have it out of the car. Put a socket on the opp. end so you don’t round the edges.

When you install the filter back on its bracket and go to tighten the line back on the pump the line wants to bend on you. I found that if you losen up the bracket that holds the pump you can tighten up the lines and adjust them. After I have the line connected to the fuel pump I tightened the fuel pump bracket. If you remove the elec. connectors keep track of how they go back. Then I connected the other side with a big cresent and a box wrench. Good luck “
