After following the DIY, I got the bleeder bolt off the top by turning it towards the driver side, now which way do I turn the anchor bolt? same direction or opposite. Clockwise or counter? What is my deal with stuck bolts today.
LOL! One thing is that you are suppose to use a Bango wrench of fuel lines. They have bango nuts. I have managed with wregular wrenches before, but if that thing is tight you will just destroy the nuts. Hit the auto part store. I believe it is the 10mm banjo. I bought a 3 wrench kit and I have never not had the right size.

The bolt on the fuel pipe on the right (driver side)? counter clockwise to loosen. And that one is tough. You need a flare-nut wrench to prevent stripping the bolt.

May also need the breaker bar or a pipe (as in DIY) for some leverage.
Will be much easier if you have someone hold the filter with the crescent wrench.

No, the other bolt on the left. I got the top bleeder bolt off but cannot move the bango bolt underneath. Which way do I turn this? Any preference on tools?

Similar. Counter clockwise, breaker bar, hold tight with crescent wrench.

FYI, that bolt is 20 ft-lb, the right one is 28 ft-lb (as tight as the oil drain plug :eek: )

Maybe it was called flare nut. Let me look it up. That was a while ago I did this.

Yep it is the flare nut is on the fuel line, still a good tool to have. The banjo bolt does not need a special wrench. The flare nut does. Here is a scan. Let me know if you need a .pdf and I can email it to you.

Later!
