The fuel filter is usually clamped somewhere on the rubber gasoline hose between the fuel tank and the carburetor. Make sure there is no gasoline in the tank and unclamp both sides of the filter to remove it. When replacing the new filter, be sure you install it the same direction as the old one was installed. If you install it backward, the fuel will not flow to the carburetot.
