WARNING: When replacing fuel line parts, be sure to observe the following.

• Put a “CAUTION: FLAMMABLE” sign in the work area.

• Be sure to work in a well ventilated area and have a CO2 fire extinguisher.

• Do not smoke while working on the fuel system. Keep open flames and sparks away from the work area.

CAUTION: • Before removing fuel line parts, carry out the following procedures: - Put drained fuel in an explosion-proof container and put the lid on securely. Keep the container in safe area.

- Release fuel pressure from the fuel lines. Refer to EC-550, "Inspection" (QR25DE for California), EC- 1038, "Inspection"(QR25DE except for California), EC-1579, "Inspection" (VQ35DE).

- Disconnect the battery ground cable.

• Always replace O-rings and clamps with new ones.

• Do not kink or twist tubes when they are being installed.

• Do not tighten hose clamps excessively to avoid damaging hoses.

Tighten high-pressure rubber hose clamp so that clamp end is 3 mm (0.12 in) from hose end.

Tightening torque specifications are the same for all rubber hose clamps.

Ensure that screw does not contact adjacent parts.

• After connecting the fuel tube quick connectors, make sure the quick connectors are secure.

Check that the connector and resin tube do not contact any adjacent parts.

- a) Apply fuel pressure to the fuel system by turning the ignition switch to ON (without starting the engine). Then check for fuel leaks at the fuel tube connections.
