The fuel filter (1) is located in the primary fuel tank module. The paper filter element traps particles in the fuel that may damage the fuel injection system. The filter housing is made to withstand maximum fuel system pressure, exposure to fuel additives, and changes in temperature.
The fuel filter is inside the tank. It is part of the fuel sending unit. They are usually good for 100,000 miles. If you want the fuel filter changed you have to drop the gas tank and replace the fuel sending unit. (I have never had to change one either)
Here is a guide to show you what you are in for when dropping the tank
Here are some diagrams to show you what is will be like on your car (below)
