Hi, this is Howard Fleischmann with Community Tire in Phoenix Arizona. In this segment we'll be getting the car in the air, draining the tank, and removing the fuel filter. Here you see the technician raising the vehicle, watching carefully to see that it's stable on the rack because, he'll be working under the car and we want no accidents. We think safety first. Once the vehicle is in the air and the rack is locked, he locates the fuel filter and begins the process of removing the filter. This is a time to be very careful because, while fuel will be leaking out of the lines and as they are loosened, so obviously make sure there are no open flames and be very careful not to cause a spark of any kind. Here you see the fuel draining out of the filter so make sure you have something to drain the gas into to avoid getting it on the floor, where fumes can be very dangerous. The gas continues to drain as the technician continues to remove the filter. In our next clip we'll continue getting the tank ready to pull.
