Fuel filter on 99 Caravan

The girlfriends dad wants me to throw a new fuel filter on his 99 caravan; just wondering if anyone knows how difficult a job this is off hand to save me from putting it up on jackstands to find that i don't have the equipment to handle it...i've done inline fuel filter swaps before so it's not new to be just wondering how this differs...never been under a caravan before

thanks all.

I have a 95 and changing the fuel filter is relatively simple - no jack stands needed. Of course, Dodge may have changed the location of the filter on the 99. On the 95, it's inline, underneath the van on the right-hand side, about midway between the right front and right rear tires, under the passenger side sliding door.

The filter is attached by two clamps on either end - very easy to remove and replace. Tip: make sure you have a container under the filter before removing it to catch the small amount of fuel that will leak from the line and filter.

it is above the gas tank as you were told it isnt that hard to change you will have to remove one of the gas tank straps I believe it is a 15 mm bolt and has a bolt holding the filter on to the tank that is 10mm if i remeber correctly the fuel filter uses quick release fittings that can usually be released by hand but a pair of needle nose pliers helps sometimes to get the clips released. so if you have a metric socket set , ratchet, extension, and jack and stands you shouldnt have any problem changing the filter.
