i know my fuel filter is located on my frame on my driver side but I was wondering how I would change my old fuel filter with looks like it hasnt been changed since '03 with a new one I just picked up from checkers?

Removal & Installation
NOTE:There is an early and late build version fuel filter. The procedure is similar for both.

Disconnect negative battery cable. Release fuel pressure. See FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE RELEASE . Remove fuel filter fittings. See FUEL LINE CONNECTORS . Remove fuel filter from bracket. See Fig. 88 . If necessary, remove the nut and the bracket. To install, reverse removal procedure.
