the fuel filter is located below the vehicle, where u pump in the fuel
after jacking up, i place a jack stand to be safe. The fuel filter is located just slightly to the left of the red stand on the pic
first open the engine bay then open the fuse box, l have pull out 2 fuse with the fuel pump logo to disable the fuel pump. I then start the engine, after a while, the engine stall as it uses up the fuel, this also make sure that fuel pump is not working after pulling out the fuse, else when i pull out the hose connecting the fuel filter, fuel will be splashing.

the new fuel filter, cost me $3, stated to change every 30,000 km

the hose is special, do not use force to pull it out, there is 2 button on it, push it and then slowly pull it out, a little fuel will come out
the new fuel filter, take out the cover and push the hose connector to it, will hear a click sound meaning it is secure. That all, fuel filter change done!
pouring out the left over fuel, find that it is dirty, that is how clean our fuel is lol...
