Fuel filter 2000 ford explorer v8


I can’t get the stinking filter off the car. I went to the auto store got the tool that the man said would work but it just won’t fit into the fitting end which on the illustration shows 2 cut out places in the flange where the tool fits I have no such cut outs the flange is solid. can anybody help?




This is what the tool should look like. Hope it helps.


Thanks Michael what they sold me was something much different.
