Default Fuel filter hose clamps

I was wondering which size hose clamps to use when replacing the fuel filter on a 2014 4 cylinder.

I've heard that the factory uses special kind of clamps which require a tool, but the videos I have seen use normal hose clamps, but with a flare on the ends to prevent them from cutting into the hose.

Can anyone tell me which size clamps I need?

Those are the clamps that require the special tool.

I am looking for normal host clamps that I can tighten with a screwdriver. That is what they use in the videos.

Just saying....Factory Clic R Type clamps are superior, exerting constant clamping force regardless of hose shrinkage. Screw type clamping force is static. Only downside, need special tool. Tool expense offset by money saved doing DIY oil changes.

I hear ya on the reasoning. In the end I think the hose clamps will work just fine.

The special tool can be had for $20.

Maybe so, but I already have a screwdriver to tighten the normal hose clamp. It's not the money as much as it's just a waste of a tool that I will never use again.

What your looking for is fuel line clamps - they're designed for the higher line pressures compaired to a hose clamp. So your search/Google - fuel line clamps
