Go to the link for Auto Zone on the right for the instructions.

I did this last night and it took me about 3 hours. You will need some 12mm, 14mm, and 17mm wrenches and sockets, and a couple of long extensions for your socket. Disconnect your battery, remove the front passenger tire, and then disconnect your power cable on the starter (12mm nut). Remove the starter (one 14mm bolt on bottom, one 14mm nut on top). You'll probably have to use your extensions to get that top nut off. Then take the banjo nuts off the filter, let it drain a minute, and unbolt it from the engine. Put the new one in, tighten the banjo nuts with a torque wrench to 22lbs, and start reassembling everything. Assembly goes a lot faster than disassembly. Keep in mind that this thing is in the worst possible position, and there is no way for you to reach anything, fit your hand where it needs to go, and is a giant contortion act from beginning to end. I hope the sorry Japanese engineer that came up with this idiotic configuration reads this and commits seppeku, or at least gets some bad fugu.

The Haynes manual I have for the 1993 Toyota pickup instructs one to remove the wiring harness from the fuel pump in order to depressurize the fuel pump before changing the filter. I could not seem to detach these wires and am guessing the removal of the battery terminals would be in lieu of this procedure. Still I'm concerned that the fuel lines might have considerable pressure in the lines despite the pump being disconnected from it's power supply.

The fuel filter is located by right side of the engine...It's in front of the master cylinder..
