The fuel filter is in the engine bay NOT in the tank, my suggestion is if you do not know where the filter is or what it looks like you will cause more damage than good which will cost you $$$$$$$in the long run. go and see your mechanic

Car not starting

Could be the fuel filter. When the vehicle used all the fuel in the tank, it may have sucked in some trash on the bottom of the tank. There is almost always some in there. You may need to replace the fuel filter and try to start the car again.

I need to need to change the petrol pump on my

Drop the tank. While you have the tank off and the pump out inspect the inside of the tank for contaminants like dirt, varnish, and even water. A clean tank means a happy pump. It's always a good idea to replace the fuel filter when you replace the fuel pump.

Drop the fuel tank, if it has the metal type locking ring, take a screw driver and hammer and tap on the tabs sticking up on the ring counter clockwise until the slots line up and pops out, then just pull out the unit tipping it to one side or the other to clear the float.
If it has the big plastic screw on type ring, you will need a special tool for that or the ring will break if your not careful.

Fuel Filter for Renault Laguna 2, year 2003, petrol 1.6

The fuel filter is in the petrol tank. You will have to drop the tank to remove the old filter. Make sure the tank is empty as it is plastic so you need to have it as light as possible.

Replace and location of fuel filter on an early 97 4 cyl camry

The fuel filter on a 97 Camry is located on the firewall, on the driver side of the engine compartment, right above the transmission. This is not easy to change. Suggest that the engine to be cold when attempting this to avoid getting burns from the hot engine. Note also that when the filter is removed, fuel may still be under pressure, and it my spray for a bit. Now, here is the bad news: Toyota fuel filters are notoriously overtightend when assembled at the factory. This being said, when you remove the filter, the threads from the line running from the bottom of the filter (to the fuel tank) my strip out when you remove that line, and you could very well need to replace that line, along with the filter. If the engine is running poorly, investigate & exhaust all possibilities to correct the running condition before condemning the fuel filter. Finally, always use new copper gaskets when replacing the filter (it should come with 2 new gaskets).
Hope this helps you.
