Standing in front of the car with the hood open it is on the

right side of the engine compartment right in the front, it should

sit like a foot away from your right leg. look for what looks like

a power steering fluid can, it's made out of plastic and you have

to turn it open and pull the filter out. The filter sits in all

this oil. make sure you also replace the plastic O ring that comes

with the filter, that goes around the lid. you don't need any tools

at all to pull it out is all done with your hands. hope I was of
