    1999 Catera: Help with Fuel Filter replacement

    I wanted to save a buck and change my fuel filter on my own, seemed simple enough. Well it turned out not to be so simple, here is what I did.

    started engine and pulled fuse to fuel pump, engine stopped.

    jacked up the rear right a bit and slid under car

    loosened top banjo bolt no problem, bottom banjo just spins free.

    I am trying to figure out how to get the bottom banjo bolt out, is a special tool needed? Why would it spin freely in both directions?

    Needless to say, car is not running as if I try to put it back together the bottom banjo leaks.......

    HELP!

    Sounds like the bottom banjo has stripped. You may try using a pair of vicegrips to squash the fitting on the filter and maybe it will back out.Just do it a little at a time and it may bot damage the bolt.
