I have a 96 Cherokee Sport, 4.0 L Automatic.
My mechanic showed me the fuel filter is bolted to the left of the fuel tank on the unibody frame rail. Access is very easy. It looks like a coffee can; slightly smaller, with a hose in each end. But the rubber hose had deteriorated under the extremely rusted metal clamps, which meant I needed an extra length of rubber hose. Kind of a pain.

It is actually INSIDE the gas tank. Replacing it requires draining and removing the fuel tank, removing the access panel on top of the tank. You will also find the fuel pump in this location. You might as well replace it if you have gone to the trouble of removing the tank.

Where to find the fuel filter and how to replace it

The filter is located under the vehicle on the left frame rail near the front of fuel tank.

You must remove the bolt securing the fuel filter bracket strap. Use a fuel line quick release tool (available at any comercial parts store) to disconnect the fuel lines from the filter. Remove the filter.

To install, simply click the fuel lines onto the new filter and install the filter into the braket and secure with the bolt.

Need to change fuel filter

You have to buy a special tool, Ford Fuel Filter Removal tool. The filter is located on the driver side frame rail, back towards the gas tank. Slide the tool over the fuel line and push it into the end of the filter, then pull the line out. Make sure you have the flow pointing in the right direction when you put the new one on.

The fuel filter is located under the vehicle on the inside of the frame rail,drivers special tool is required. A 5/8 line wrench to break loose the fuel lines. There is one bolt that holds the bracket to the frame you'll have to remove. Use caution due to fuel pressure on the line.

the air filter is in a box under the hood, the fuel filter is in the rear under the car, near the tank. If you dont know where they are located, you should not attempt to replace them, The air filter is easy enough, but the fuel filter requires special tools.

Need a special tool to release the hose fittings from the fuel filter. Without the tool it is not going to come off. You can borrow a fuel line disconnect set from checker auto. The have a nice Powerbuilt brand kit made of billet aluminium. The crappy cast-iron ones that look like scissors or the plastic ones don't work very well. The tool slides inside the fitting and releases it so you can slide it off easily. My 2000 explorer uses the 5/16" tool from the set to remove the line from the fuel filter. Note that some vehicles have a fitting that requires another type of tool that goes around the outside of the fitting and compresses some spring clips so the fitting slides off the filter.
