Hi,

The fuel filter is contained in the fuel sender assembly inside the fuel tank. It isn't one that is easily replaced.

If you look below, I attached the directions for the fuel pump sender assembly replacement. These directions explain how to get the assembly from the tank. Once out, you will need to take things apart to access the filter.

Additionally, at the bottom of the fuel pump pick-up is what is called a sock. That functions as a filter as well.

If you need help with any of the procedures, let me know.

Take care,

Joe
