Does any one know how to change the fuel filter on a 99 SVT Cobra?

Thanks for your help

Yeah.....I would like to know that and how to flush and refill the radiator on a 99

The flush/fill procedure should be in your manual, and/or the SVT supplement. Basic refill procedure will be to fill the tank, and then remove the plug from that black crossover tube and fill the rest of the system through the hole in that tube.

Fuel filter replacement:

I'm not sure you want to follow my procedure cause you will get gas in the mouth and all over the clothes but I did change it.

Basically, there are two clips that hold the filter on to the line. I got under the Snake and pulled both clips off. I then pulled one side off and got gas spewed all over me so by then it was a snap. I just pulled the old filter off and put the new one on in reverse order. I then secured it back with the two clips.

It's actually a 5 minute job if I knew how to relieve the gas line pressure or drain the gas out of it. If you are low on gas in the line then just turn the key on and off a few times and the pump should fill the line back up as it is an electric pump.

Sorry, I couldn't be of more help to you.

If the 99 is anything like my 95, you should be able to cut the inertia switch in the trunk, start the car and let it run till it dies then do what Tony did, minus the gas in the mouth.. :D

Don't cut any wires just take it like a man and get a little dirty, gas won't kill you.

Who said cut? Did I say cut? :D I haven't done it in a while, but you either unplus the switch or push the button, can't remember which it is. :doubt:

I believe both my 99 and my 94 are the same. You will also have to take the bracket loose that holds the filter on. Again, a 5 minute job with gas in the mouth. :rotf:

98's and up require the fuel line disconnect tool to remove the fuel lines going into and coming out of the filter? I know mine requires it......it's what I had to use
