I was changing the fuel filter in the accent and in doing so twisted the fuel line that is conected to the filter<img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle> My question is, can I splice it with a hose and clamps or will I need to replace the whole damn line?

The guy at NAPA said that there is too much pressure going through there to splice it but then he said that he has a stronger tube with special clamps that you could do it with but it should be just temporary. This would be fine since it would still be under $10. So can it be done or not?

hmm...That could work, if there is a small leak or whatnot. But I would replace the entire thing because I wouldn't want any trouble and for piece of mind. Remember: This is gasoline that would be leaking. One spark and BOOM! Bye Bye Accent.

Those things are a bitch to change out. They put them in the hardest place possible to reach <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>.

I never located it yet in my car. I never had the need to just yet. If its in a spot like the oil filter is, then damn what a pain. They do that on purpose so you can't get to it and have to bring it in to get serviced. Its all a marketing scheme.<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

MST, same place as the Accents.

Bolted to the firewall, just behind and below the intake manifold <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>.

mine is bolted down by the driver's side strut tower. It is deep down there and no room to work with!<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_shy.gif border=0 align=middle>
