E350 Van Fuel Filter question

I hope I'm in the right forum, but I don't see PowerStroke 7.3L van forums. We're having a hard time removing the fuel filter to replace it. It seems to be under the turbo and we're wondering if there are step by step instructions somewhere. We have two books and both say, "remove the fuel filter". Not so easy; it has a cap on it that is blocked by the turbo and air filter.

Thanks for any help.

Also, the resevoir that holds water from the fuel (can't remember the name of the thing (luckilly, *I'm* not the mechanic [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]) is giving us trouble. The handle simply came off when we tried to remove the top to drain the water. Any hints there?

Can anyone recommend a good book for our van? It is a 2002 Ford E350 SLT (15 passenger) 7.3L PowerStroke van. Thanks!

Re: E350 Van Fuel Filter question

There are responses to your original post on this subject in this LINK TO YOUR THREAD which is now a few pages back in the Van forum. This is the correct forum for vans, the one forum covers all Ford diesel van models. LarryM also brought forward several other fuel filter threads which are also now a few pages back, although the responses in the linked thread pretty well cover it.

The best book for your van IMO is the OEM Ford Service Manual.The manuals are available from Helm. www.helminc.com They are available in CD or paper. I prefer the paper manual. The set will be over $100.00 ($160 IIRC)but will cover everything.

Re: E350 Van Fuel Filter question

Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!! I could have sworn I posted before but couldn't find it anywhere. Since we're always on the move, I just assumed I did something wrong when I thought I posted. Thanks for the link to the original thread; I thought I never got it posted.

Re: E350 Van Fuel Filter question

Your Welcome! I think your original post was in the 99 and up 7.3 forum and it got moved to here since it was a Van related question. If you click on your user name in any thread your profile will come up and along the bottom you will see "show all posts for this user" click on that and any where you have posted or replied to a post will show up. I use this feature to find back threads I have posted in but didn't start. Ithink you can also go to your home page and set it up to e-mail you when someone has replied to your post and I think the e-mail will contain a link.

By the way, removing the engine cover inside the van is much easier if you remove the drink holder/storage bin that is mounted on the front first. The release clip is behind the plastic storage door. You have to flex the sides of the storage door to get it to open past the stops so you can access the clip. The clip is springsteel, just pull back and lift straight up on the storage bin.
