no you don't...

don't really need to do anything but make sure the key is not in the ignition..

However if you really insist you could always just disconnet the battery or disconnect the inertia switch in the trunk for the pump.

What's taking the fuel cap off have to do with changing the fuel filter?? Does it release the pressure out of the tank or what??

you don't have to take the cap off. it wont do anything..

the fuel filter is in-line. no tank pressure is going to get past the fuel pump.

Yes there will be residual pressure on the line from the pump but it wont turn on unless the key is on so you can just disconnect the lines and replace the fuel filter..

You will leak a little fuel but it is what is in the lines and filter already. Just have a rag near by so you can use to catch the fuel when you pull the lines.

Hi,

Best thing to do is check your owner's manual. It will show which one is for the fuel pump. Mine is the engine compartment power distribution fuse box and it is a off-white color and is square.

No manual? Try here:-
http://www.hillerford.com/research/owner-manuals.html

Ford's directions (for 2003) is disconnect battery cable and to remove the fuel pump relay and turn the engine over until it stops running and continue for about 5 seconds thereafter.

Be careful not to ignite the gasoline, don't cause a spark, don't do it while smoking your pipe or cigs, etc., etc., while doing it. Be prepared for fuel spray possibly and fuel spillage(almost certain).

You will have to retrain the fuel trim/idle since the battery cable was disconnected. See manual for that as well.

I would do that procedure regardless, however especially if I just drove the car.

At least now (on my '03) the connectors are easy to slide off (don't need to remove them)and you don't need to replace them with the old hairpin clips. Remember to put a thin film of clean 5w20 oil on both ends of the fuel filter. I just took some off my dipstick and rubbed it on the filter ends.

You have now saved about $80 especially if you got the filter at a good price.

Hope that helps, unless you did it already.

Best wishes..Scott (Hi from West Bend)
