It is in the fuel line, under the chassis, under the front drivers door (in a 2000) and has 2 little clamps holding the hoses and a ring clamp holding it to the chassis. It will take you only 5 minutes to change and costs about $10. It will leak a little gas at first (1 cup) so keep your head away. A 12 year old can do this.On the 1999 models its located on the passenger side rear almost even with the tire.

It's best if you find your fuel shut off first, located on the left wall under the dashboard in a 2000 SE. There's a square hole in the plastic cover; stick your finger in there and push down on the red button and crank the car. Let it idle until it dies. It may take a few minutes. Repeat three times. That will relieve the pressure in the fuel lines, and you won't have so much gas squirt out when you disconnect the filter. When you're done, turn the fuel back on (you have to manually raise the red button you pushed down before) and before turning the car over turn the key to the on position, then off, then on. That'll prime the pump and re-pressurize the fuel lines.
