The fuel filter is located in the right front wheel well. It is behind the plastic splash shield. The R/F wheel must be removed, then the plastic splash shield must be removed and then you will find the filter located at the rear area of the wheel well. It is held in place by one 5/16 bolt and the two FORD QUICK CONNECT clips that hold the fuel line into and out of the filter. Do this replacement when the car is cold and prior to removing the filter find the schraeder valve in the fuel rail, on the drivers side near the drivers side front close to the fuel injector. Remove the cap and press the pin in the valve so as to release the fuel pressure, replace the cap at this time as you should not need to ccess the valve again.
