The fuel filter is located on the passengers side, rear of the car on the front/side of the fuel tank. (see photo)
There are 4 13mm bolts that hold the tank straps to the body.. remove them. no need to remove the straps.
Disconnect the cable from the front of the tank. There are 2 plastic clips on the tank.
Using a prybar or something like it to GENTLY pry the front of the gas tank down enough to slip a 2x4 up on top of the tank. This will hold the tank in the downward position.
I use a 8mm 12pt 3/8 drive allen and a 8mm ratcheting gear wrench to remove the bolt that holds the filter strap to the side of the tank. There is not enough room for a ratchet on the end of the socket.
Remove the lower banjo bolt attaching the fuel line to the filter 19mm socket. You may want to use a larger wrench to grip the fuel filter itself while breaking the banjo bolt free. CAUTION........THE FUEL SYSTEM MAY BE UNDER PRESSURE AND FUEL WILL SPRAY OUT AND LEAK FOR A MINUTE WHEN YOU LOOSEN THIS BOLT (MAYBE A PINT OF FUEL). HAVE RAGS HANDY. Pull the line out of the way.
You will now be able to grab and pull the filter down and out. You will be able to disconnect the 17mm banjo attaching the other line to the filter..
There is no way possible to reverse the lines or the filter. They have one large and one small hole where the lines attach.
Make sure to replace the sealing washers when you replace the filter. Your local dealer SHOULD have them in stock and you will need a total of 4. Replace filter in reverse order!
