I bought this 2000 Toyota Camry from some very nice folks who cannot even spell "maintenance". So I need to replace the fuel filter as no one knows when it was last done. What I would love to know is how to not be sprayed with fuel when I remove the fuel line from the filter?
I know I need to pull the fuse / disconnect the battery, but that only prevents the pump from running again. The fuel line is still pressurized from the last time the pump ran. Will I damage the fuel line if I crimp it flat with a C clamp? I know I can put a bolt in it once it's free, but how do I prevent that initial spray of fuel?
