There is a special tool you can get from an auto parts store. Ask them and they should be able to help you find it. The price is about ten bucks. Also make sure there is no pressure in the line. Let the car idle and pull the fuel pump fuse and wait for the car to die.

  • It is located, as already answered... on the passenger side, attached to the underside of the car near the door.

There are small springs inside the filter that require the special tool to unlock them. It takes a lot of rocking and pulling to unattach the filter from the fuel lines (even with the special tool!) Putting it back together is a snap compared to getting it apart!
