The fuel filter on the 1992 Toyota Previa is located about 1/2 way down the vehicle on the driver side (just about even with the end of the driver side door). It is mounted on the frame about 8 inches in. To give myself more space to get my ratchet in and wrenches, the first thing I did was remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the van that is about 4 ft long. I believe there were 5 or 6 bolts that I had to remove. After that was removed, I removed the bottom bolt from the fuel filter. This released the line that goes from the gas tank to the fuel filter. GAS CAME OUT OF THIS LINE UNTIL I HAD THE END OF THE LINE ELEVATED. I used a zip tie through the hole in the end of the line and attached the line to another line that was running under the van. This stopped the flow of gas and also got the line out of my way. Next I removed the two bolts that attached the fuel filter to the frame of the van. Third, I removed the bolt from the top of the fuel filter. After the fuel filter was removed from the vehicle, you need to remove the mounting bracket from the old fuel filter and re-attach it to the new fuel filter. There are small raised ridges on the fuel filter and these need to be lined up with the ridges on the mounting bracket. You are almost ready to re-attach the new fuel filter to the vehicle. BEFORE YOU REATTACH THE FUEL FILTER, YOU'LL NOTICE THAT THE TWO BOLTS THAT WERE REMOVED FROM THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE FUEL FILTER ARE HOLLOW AND HAVE HOLES THAT GO ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE BOLT BELOW THE THREADS. THESE HOLES MUST LINE UP WITH THE HOLES IN THE LINES THAT ENTER AND LEAVE THE FUEL FILTER. I took a black felt tip permanent marker and made a line across the top of the bolt that was parallel to the hole through the bolt. That way when I tightened up the bolt to the fuel filter I was able to see where to stop so that the gasoline could flow through the line, through the bolt and into and out of the fuel filter. I found that it was easiest to reattach the top bolt and line to the new fuel filter first. Make sure that there is a washer (provided with the new fuel filter) on the top and bottom of each line that is attached back to the fuel filter. Next I reattached the line from the gas tank to the fuel filter. Try and keep the line at an angle so that it doesn't leak gasoline. Finally reattach the new fuel filter to the frame. Don't forget to reattach the black plastic protective shield to the bottom of your van. Start up your van and let it run for about 5 minutes to make sure that you don't havfe any leaks. Good Luck. El filtro de gasolina esta situado atras del piloto por el lado de abajo, este filtro es con una campana de 10 cm de largo y unos 6 cm de diametro

The fuel filter is located under the vehicle in the area just below the sliding door. You do not have to jack up the vehicle to change this. Be prepared to spill a LOT of gas when removing the filter. Work fast. Don't do it indoors.
