I'm getting ready to replace my filter, and the bracket is rusted out. I'm hoping someone out there has an extra one in decent condition. My car has the dual fuel pumps. Dealer wants $100 for it-NO WAY!

The steel is pretty thick. I had rusted ones, 420 and 300, and I cleaned them up and replaced the nuts and bolts.

You can clean up your old one pretty well and then paint it to stop it from rusting...unless of course the bracket is completly rusted through. Mine just had surface rust. A new bracket will have the same rust problem in a few years.

I found one out of Arizona for $26 shipped in good condition. I may just go ahead and get it just incase. The rust on my bracket is pitted pretty good. It doesn't appear to be just surface rust in my case. Thanks guys for your input.
