Re: 2005 cavalier fuel filter
Its above the rear axle, slightly towards the front and it looks kinda like a soup can with a hose off each end. My 03 cavalier has a threaded line on the drivers side and a plastic clip holding the hose on the other side. took me about 15 minutes to change it. Needed a couple wrenches and a few rags. Pretty easy though

Yes the plugs are under this plastic cover which is your coil and pack and ignition module.The filter is located directly behind the fuel tank.Just follow the fuel lines.Make sure and blow all the dirt out first.You might want to use some rust penetrent.Hope this helps.Good luck.
It is part of the fuel sending unit at the top of the fuel tank. It is not a separately serviceable part. If you decide you must replace it, you must get the entire fuel pump module. You would need to remove the fuel tank and it takes a specific special tool to remove the nut/retaining ring holding the unit to the tank.
There is no special tools needed, you will probably find the fuel fuel filter beneath the undercarriage of the vehicle, check both sides just below the seating area and if not found there you will have to trace the fuel line from the fuel tank forward intil you locate the fuel filter.
drain the exisiting tank down or run the vehicle to almost empty, disconnect the fuel line at the tank if possible while still hanging to body, if not, remove straps(this is why you want it almost empty) and gently lower the tank down and remove any remaining fuel lines
you may need special fuel line disconnect tools to remove the fuel lines and possibly a repair kit to fix the very common fuel filter steel line rusting solid to the fuel filter.
Hello. The fuel filter is located under the rear seat on the passenger side. You need a special tool to remove it, available at any autoparts store. Locate the old filter and remove the safety locks, . Insert the tool as far as it will go. Twist and pull gently to release the lock.repeat for the opposite end. Do not force the lock as they damage easily. The new filter will self-lock as you install it on the fuel lines. Listen for the lines to click. Reinstall the safety locks.
I changed the fuel filter in my 04 explorer last week. You to need a special tool, it is just a little plastic tool that you slide onto the fuel line to release the clips holding the line onto the filter. If you know what your doing and have easy access to the filter, and most importantly...you enjoy doing the work then buy the tool and change the filter. By the way the tool ranges from $5 to $20, depending on what the part store has on their shelves.
