HOW TO REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER?

2004 Kia Spectra

Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Kia Spectra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 38,500 miles

Could someone tell me how to replace the fuel filter on my 2004 Kia Spectra LX 2.0L, please? I believe that the fuel filter is under the rear seat of the car. ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!
