Passenger side rear, just ahead of the rear wheel and under the car is a fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel accumulator. They are mounted on a carrier. With the fuel tank 1/4 full or less of fuel remove the 4 nuts holding the carrier in place. Using the correct wrenches hold the hex on the filter end and loosen the banjo fittings at each end. Do not lose the copper gaskets, they are to be reused. Loosen and remove the fuel lines. There is a band holding the filted in place, a 10mm socket is used to loosen the strap. Loosen the strap and slode the filer out of the carrier. Replacement is the reverse action. Make sure that the fuel flow direction follows the arrows on the filter body. Tighten the strap and then re-mount the carrier. Good Luck

The fuel filter should be an inline type. There is a clip on ache end. Pull the clips off and the filter can be removed. Be careful that fuel does not spray on you, as the fuel is under pressure.
