Re: fuel filter seized bolts

Did you let it soak?
Tapping it a few times helps with the penetration

You might need to use a makeshift breaker bar

If you don't have a lot of room you can use a jack under the handle.

Re: fuel filter seized bolts

Hey sorry for late reply...yeah I tapped it and I let it soak, applied quite a bit of pb blaster as well. The small pressure bolt is able to be unscrewed it's only the banjo bolts that won't budge.

Re: fuel filter seized bolts

There are 3 things you can do: add leverage, whack it with a hammer, or hit it with penetrating oil. You can also do more than one at the same time.

For example: One time we had a lugnut that wouldn't come off my buddies Karmann Ghia. We ended up with 3 of us on a fence post we put on the end of the breaker bar and another person alternately whacking it with a hammer and hitting it with penetrating oil. Still took us 10 minutes. lol

Re: fuel filter seized bolts

Have you tried putting a socket on it and giving the socket a few good cracks with a hammer?

If none of what we've recommended so far works, your going to need to either disconnect the fuel lines and apply heat or cut the heads off and re-tap.

Re: fuel filter seized bolts

I mean the poor guy has been working on this thing for 2 days, and it's gotta be cold (I'm freezing in TX). I'm sure he would be more than willing to compensate at this point. It beats paying the dealership.
