The fuel filter is located in the fuel feed line attached to the left frame rail, at the rear of the vehicle.

Relieve the fuel system pressure.
If not done already, disconnect the negative battery cable.
Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Clean both fuel feed pipe connections and the surrounding areas at the in-line fuel filter with a clean rag to avoid possible contamination of the fuel system.
Using a backup wrench, remove the fuel line fittings from the fuel filter.
Either separate the quick-connect fittings or remove the fuel filter mounting screws, then slide the fuel filter out of the mounting bracket.
Discard the fuel line O-rings and replace with new ones during installation.

To install:

Install new O-rings to the fuel line fittings.
Connect the fuel lines to the fuel filter.
Position the filter in the mounting bracket, in the same position it was during removal. Using a backup wrench, tighten the fuel lines to 16 ft. Lbs. (22 Nm).
Install the fuel filter mounting screws.
Carefully lower the vehicle. Install or tighten the fuel filler cap.
Connect the negative battery cable.
Start the engine and check for leaks.
