1996 SL2 which Wix Fuel Filter Part#
My '96 SL2 is still equipped with its factory installed OEM fuel filter. I changed out the one on my 1995 SL1 using WIX part#33575 (this was several years back in 2012...). When glancing between my '95 SL1 and '96 SL2, the parts look 100% identical, but for some reason RockAuto does not list Wix Fuel Filter #33575 as compatible with my 1996 SL2. Can anyone verify what the correct Wix brand fuel filter part number is for a 1996 Saturn SL2? Thank you!
Also, I remember having a heck of a time getting the fuel line to properly disconnect (shrader valve?). Is there a specific tool or method? I'm embarassed to say that I man-handled this on my SL1, and while the old filter/line did come off... it wasn't pretty..

FWIW, AFAIK, same fuel filter for '95-97. Oreilly's shows MicroGard - Fuel Filter Part # 33575 for my '97 SC2, and the same part number usually means that it's a Wix filter boxed and sold under another name.
Rockauto is only showing generic (Dorman) inline filters for my '97 when I search by going down the left "tree" for parts, but if you do a part search by number, it shows Wix #33575 as compatible for 95-97 S series per attached screen grab
