HOW TO REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER

2006 Toyota Camry

2006 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles

Hi,

I am living in Saudi Arabia-Jeddah, having 2006 Camry.
It started some unusual small Pauses / jerks during the low speed. Took to the mechanic who advised to bring the Fuel Filter and will change it. I believe it should be something very difficult sp I decided to check with you whether I can do it or not. By the way I am an electrical Engineer and most of the mechanical tools and instruments are not unknown to me. Please guide me and I am sure I can do it easily.
