Get the car up on a jackstand or a lift and look up in front of the tank . It is kind of up ina recess. Follow the fuel line to it.

Yeah you will see it once you get under there. Should not take more then 10 minutes to change it out.

Watch for getting fuel in your eyes, its best to depresurize the system first..

Make sure you have the quick discoonect line tool. You can buy a set at Autozone or Discount Auto for a couple of bucks.

I do it about every 10-15K miles which is a tad overkill. Usually every 20-30K miles is adequate.

No more than 30k between changes is a good idea, especially with some of the crap they are selling as fuel these days.

i didn't need a fuel filter wrench for mine, just had to release the clips. pretty easy. definitely depressurize the system by disconnecting the fuel filter fuse and running the car till it dies. i had to start my car twice before it equalized.

He means the fuel pump fuse.

You don't need the disconnect tools for the focus. Only plastic clips that you pull out....or break taking out. So you should probably get extras while at the parts store when doing the fuel filter yourself.
