    Just in front of the rear axle, behind a plastic shield. You need to remove the shield to access the filter, should be three plastic nuts holding the shield in place. the filter may have as many as 4 hoses connected to it. Careful, one of the hoses is a direct feed from the fuel tank, so you can easily take a shower in gas. I would say to use pinch off pliers to prevent fuel from pouring out, but using pliers to do that depends on the condition of the hoses. Because of the age of the hoses, you will need to proceed with caution. We change the hose clamps when we change the fuel filters. Make sure to match them up visually prior to install and mind the arrow showing direction of flow. Good luck.
