The newer clamp style filters are pretty easy as long as the fuel line clips come apart the first time. Front driveshaft is kinda in the way but it's doable. Older trucks with the hose clamp around the filter can be a pain if the hose clamp gets rusted up but the fuel line clips are a lot easier. This reminds me that I need to change filters in a couple trucks.

FWIW I have not seen a baffled factory fuel tank yet. If you have small enough arms, you can put your whole arm in the tank and wipe it out through the sending unit hole.

I originally thought it was going to be a pain to get it off also. With the 4406 in there the filter and case are pretty much giving each other a high five they are so close.

One time I replaced the original air and fuel filters on a 500 at 80K miles. That was no bueno. I showed the guy his air filter, and he was amazed it even ran (so was I). He came back a week later to tell me that the car felt much peppier and had picked up about 5 MPG on the tank he had run since it was in for service.
I can only imagine the stuff you have seen over the years.

Oh the stories I have.

Never put a radiator in a CR-V without a new temp sensor on hand.

I like it when things catch fire and explode, which means I do not have your best interests in mind.
