Best Answer

On the passenger side, underside of the car, approx front of the door there is a metal panel to unscrew. It will expose the fuel filter, which is held on merely by a couple of clamps, generally. The new filter should come with the proper clamps as well. Easy job, 5 minutes, but you will get fuel on your hands, so rubber gloves would be a good idea...
