The manual states it is in the fuel tank, attached to the pump assembly. But the manual also has a picture of a fuel filter mounted near the firewall. I would look for the one in the engine compartment first

See diagrams below

If you remove the rear seats, you should be able to see a panel cover for access to the fuel pump housing and wire connectors.

You're welcome.

There is a filter which is supposedly maintenance free, however they do fail at times, and is attached to the fuel pump.

Both 1998 and 200 year models are similar.
