    the filter is under the vehicle, can't remember where it is in the fuel line but you'll see it under the vehicle. It's a metal can about 4 inches long and 2 inches across with pipe fittings on each end. You'll need a 16mm and 20mm wrench to deal with the fittings. When you have the new on in your hand you'll see what it looks like. Be careful of getting a gasoline bath when you loosen the fittings, use eye protection and gloves.
