    Works great!

    Thanks for the instructions - just did this myself and it worked great. Took 40mins - 1 hour (lack of experience ) The hoses are really difficult to get off of the old fuel filter, but using a large flathead screwdriver worked well. There was very little pressure in the fuel lines when removing the tubes after doing procedure (unplugging the green/white connection, then running the car until it died). I noticed an immediate reduction in the hesitation of my WRX, especially during 2nd gear hard throttle accelerations. I have about 29,400 miles on my '04 WRX wagon.

    I heard the 2005 fuel filter is in the gas tank? I tried getting under the car and locating it, but was not successful. How hard is it to get to and where is it? Thanks VERY much!

    Something that made it substationally easier to get off for me was to take a pair of pliers wrapped in a rag and crush the raised part at the end of the lines. I did that and the lines slipped right off. no screw driver or anything.
