Try the "Related Link" below to the Autozone / Chiltons repair guide for the 2000-2005 Taurus fuel filter instructions.

Be sure to review the precautions & advice in the repair guide.

Typically it can be found attached to the frame on the passenger's side, underneath the seating area near the door or edge of the vehicle. It may have metal shield surrounding it. (NOTE: Always remember to relieve the fuel pressure before attempting any work on the fuel lines!)

Its under the passenger side rear door....

The fuel filter is underneath the body undercarriage, just follow the fuel line to the gas tank and you will see it under near the rear of the car near the tire strut.

You will need to jack up the RR corner of the vehicle to reach it. The fuel filter is fastened with a big clamp to the right side frame rail, close to the fuel tank, just ahead of the RR wheel. Use a small flat screwdriver to remove the two plastic clips from the lines attached to the filter. Be careful, the lines are under pressure, and there will be fuel that will spray out as you unplug the lines from the filter. Use a flat screwdriver to loosen the clamo from the body of the filter and then you can remove and replace the filter. Install the new plastic line clips that are in the box with the filter into the lines and then plug the lines onto the filter until you hear them click in place.

on the passenger side in front of the rear wheel you will see underneath just need flathead screwdriver pop the clips take the clamp loose and there you go.

No there is only one, and it is on the underside of the car fastened to the right frame rail, back near the fuel tank.

Stop!!!

Dont use a screwdriver to remove the clips when removing the gas filter , as most people break them . These clips are easy to find for the older Taurus but the 2004 and newer are tough to find ,forget the dealer for these..

To remove the clip push down on the center of the top of the clip (not hard with nail ,pen or punch) this spreads the jaws of the clip. You can then slide the hose easily off while doing this at the same time. NO Damage . Who says you need a special tool. If you break a clip try NAPA NCK11 for the small one ,but there are about 3 or 4 types depending on the Model year. To put the hose back on the new filter, just press it on until you hear the clicking sound. Dont remove the clip from the hose end, it has a taper and is meant to be installed this way.
