improved section of answer: you have to release the fuel pressure before starting this job. you can open the gas cap for an easier method. some models have a fuel cutt off switch. I had a hard time finding it, too. Things to know first: It's about the size of a soup can, has three fuel lines running into it that have quick-disconnect fittings. This means you have to buy a very cheap, plastic tool to disconnect the lines. Tell the parts store you need the quick-disconnect tool that matches your tubing size on the filter: I found an assortment in a package for about $5. Now, jack up the passenger-side of the car. Crawl under below the post that divides passenger front door from back door, and look up. You're looking for a cylinder mounted front-to-back, just inside the edge of the frame. If I remember correctly, you have one tube running into the back (from fuel tank), and two leading out from the front. A one-bolt clamp holds it in place. I found it easier to take the clamp loose work on it. The plastic tool is sort of T-shaped, with the bottom of the T formed by a split tube that connects to a flat disk that is also split. The idea is to hold the tool with the flat disk end toward the filter, and spread the split over the tube: it will slide over the tube end enclose it. You now have a filter at one end, a quick disconnect at the end of your fuel line where it attaches to your filter (metal tubing end of filter), and your tool slipped over the metal tubing between filter and disconnect. Shove the disconnect tool toward the fuel line...it should be possible to force it into the end of the quick disconnect and release it, allowing you to shove the fuel line off. You'll get a bit of gasoline-cologne out of this, but it shouldn't leak much---it's supposed to seal. Now, do the same thing to the remaining two tubes, and your old fuel filter should be completely disconnected. Bolt the new one into the clamp and onto the car....push the three fuel lines back onto the filter, and it's time to crawl back out----you're done. Jack the car back down and grin proudly.
