Re: Warning fuel hose popping off!
this happened to me a couple years ago. Stopped dead.
The filter is held on from the factory by crimped clamps. Those normally work. My dealer had tried to do the same, using the specialized tool required to crimp the clamps. One end fell off. Instant show stopper.
Our CCR tech sessions and some dealers have used stainless hose clamps that work just like any radiator clamp with the spiral screw. Properly tightened, these are the answer. It is something anyone can fix...but not on the road!
That's the way I remember it, but that's very suspect these days, so perhaps an expert will chime in.
