I just did it on my lunch hour. First you need to release any back pressure by leaving the car off and open the throttle a couple of times. Not too much so you don't flood the engine. Its also a good idea to wear safety glasses. The filter is located under your hood near the Power Steering res. Its shiney black and looks more like a air coditioning component. Due to the high pressure situation Toyota didn't take any chances, so you may have to put a lot of muscle into the bottom threaded intake port. Be sure you have good open ended box wrench to hold this with.I found it easier to remove the outlet side first.(top side), then remove the mounting bracket, find a tight fitting open end wrench to turn the filter @ the bottom rather than turning the fitting ( because of tight clearance). Be very careful to replace the brass seal ring/s back in there proper inlet/ outlet lines these are extremely critical for safety. You will find that installation is much easier then removal.This is a very high quality filter(and Expensive). After 300,000 miles I just flushed mine out W/ heptane followed by compressed air and still works like a charm. I couldn't recommed this to anybody else, I'm just cheap!

I have a 1990 Tercel and the fuel filter is on the driver's side in the breather / air filter area. I found it best to have the new filter handy. Simply disconnect the old one with screw driver and pliers. Some gas may come out of the line, if the new filter is handy you shouldn't lose much by putting the new one on quickly. Tighten and you are ready to go. Bill
