This is my first post and I'm happy to be a part of this community!

My Question:
Do I remove the plastic screen from the fuel filter, or is this a new design? (see photos)

My Recommendation:
I paid a little more for an American product and was really impressed. I got this MotivX wrench from Amazon and it looks awesome. It was packaged like an iphone! I assume some of you use a strap or oil filter wrench, channel locks, or even just your hands, but I think I'll be happiest using this. (see photos)

Do not remove the screen, filter is correct as is. I have yet to use any tools other than my hands and a gallon bag to change the fuel filter, all the fancy tools are definitely not needed.

Thanks for the quick feedback!

I plan to change the filter tomorrow, so we'll see if my fancy wrench was necessary (you may be crazy strong!).
