The fuel tank filter is in the driverside rear wheel well. Remove the wheel and the wheel well skirt. You will see a small black filter with a single hose to it on fuel filler neck. Good luck

Well it is recomended that you replace it at that mileage, It really is not a critical part thou and if your not having issues it doesnt have to be replaced, Its considered PREVENTIVE maintenance. It only filters the fresh air going to the charcoal canistor for the evaporative emisions system, I have seen in the past where spiders will spin webs inside the filters and they get clogged. The symptom of a clogged filter would be noticed while filling vehicle with fuel the pump would keep stopping and vehicle would not take fuel properly.

Thank you very much mr tech your answer is very well apreciated.
Have a good day
