Kia Niro: Fuel Delivery System / Release residual pressure in fuel line

Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line
  

Whenever the high pressure fuel fuse, fuel pipe, delivery pipe, or injector is removed immediately after shutting off the engine, an injury may be caused by the release of highly pressurized fuel. Release the residual pressure in the high pressure fuel line by referring to the "Residual fuel pressure release procedure" below before removing any high pressure fuel system components.

  

Wear safety glasses and fuel resistant gloves.
