Fuel Filter help

I'm trying to change my fuel filter. I have a Bentley's Manual on the way in the mail, but was trying to expedite the project. I can't find the fuel filter. I assumed it was under the left side of the engine.....according to pelicanparts.com.

If it's not in the engine bay, check behind the rear passenger wheel next to the fuel tank. If in the engine bay, it's next to the starter motor.

Yep, it's right above the right halfshaft. To minimize the fuel spill, turn on the engine and remove the fuel pump relay so that the engine consumes the fuel and lowers the residual pressure.

Good Luck!

Followed the manual....and wouldn't you know, it worked. Took about twenty minutes. The hardest part was getting the socket wrench to loosen the bracket.
