Also, if you have no luck with Carson Toyota. You can also try the Toyota dealer in Houston, TX. They're called champion Toyota and they give the same discounts as carson.
FYI: For either Carson or Champion. If the part you're trying to order is shared with a Toyota. You will save a few bucks if you search the part number as a Toyota instead of a Lexus
thanks jeff, i will try that. when i get back to work, i will be PM'ing you. i need a few things, maybe one u can make

nice...u must have a GOOD discount as the filter is like 30 and another 5 for the pre filter and those prices are other dealership prices. my local toyota wants 45 just for the big filter

One of those might. Och went through a lot to find the exact. I think he might have measurements.

Hell no, none of these will work. I went through hell to find the right O-Ring (actually i got five of them, and still have 3 saved up just in case).

I don't remember the measurements now unfortunately, but look in my old thread, I might have posted them.

Actually I found them, M3.5x10, and it needs to be made out of rubber that is not affected by petrol. Most radiator/air o-rings will not do. The ones that I found are viton, they are petrol resistant.

well bringing this back up FINALLY did mine about 3 weeks ago.....just now getting to the pics

did a semi DIY...its VERY simple to do, only reason my DIY isnt complete is i had gas all over and i will explain why in a second.


well this is what the cover looks like when removed and the plug pulled (unclipped) out of the fuel filter. you can see the plug in the left side of the picture

if u wiped this are clean (all that is road dirt/grime) where you see my YELLOW ARROW you would see a yellow clip, you will slide forward (towards the passenger side) to remove the fuel line from the car (i used a small flathead and scooted the clip forward) then when you remove the fuel line (just pull upward it is kinda stuck but it does come) you will figure out REALLY quickly this line is pressurized and i squirted ALOT of gasoline onto my concrete as it sprayed down and out the hole also the RED ARROWS are the screws you need to undo, to get the fuel filter out of the car.

this is step i was missing when i did my fuel filter

this YELLOW ARROW shows the pressurized fuel line, unclip this connecter and slide the fuel line down off the assembly (remember its pressurized so it will shoot gas out of it) so either have a glass jar or a bottle nearby when doing this or just let it drop back into the gas tank....i dont remember what i did

this is what the fuel filter assy looks like when you clean it up, upper right part is where fuel line connects along with the yellow clip

To remove the old assy you will see clips all around the old one, simply unclip them. here are some by the arrows

Did you had any issues with the o ring? I guess not since everything is okay, but did you had to hassle with it at all? So is it really dirty or the medium is made like that?

This sounds like something I need to do. 01 w/ 174 on the clock and I hightly doubt this has been changed. Can someone take a picture or post directions on how to get to the fuel filter? I see how to change it once it's out, but I'm not even sure I would know where to start. (obviously near/in the tank, but something more specific would be nice)
