It is under the car, in the rear, just ahead of the wheel, on the passenger side. Simpley disconnect the clips, and remove. Fuel will spill out, but it will be ok. Just get the new one in asap, and make sure you note the direction of fuel flow on the filter, and replace in the same direction. MAKE SURE TO PUT THE NEW CLIPS ON SECURELY! If they come off, the fuel line will come off, and your car will stall, which can be dangerous under certain circumstances. Other than that, its SUPER easy. Do it regularly. Good luck Under the car either on the side of the frame or in the back by the gas tank. It is located inside of the gas tank. The fuel filter is located just before the passenger side rear tire on the underside of the car.
