You DO NOT need to remove the fuel tank to replace this filter.
My 1999 Signature Series Town Car did not require the special tool. It has two push out clips which hold the fuel lines in place. New clips came in the box with the filter. The clips are off-white in color and look like skinny versions of the plastic safety plugs moms use to keep toddlers from sticking objects into electrical outlets in your home.
The fuel filter is located just below the rear passenger side door - along the outside rail of the frame. It May or MAY NOT require the special tool.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN.
Be sure to depressurize the system by turning the off fuel pump - either by unplugging the cord in the left side of the trunk next to the hinge mount or removing the fuse (#14 20 amp in the fuse box under the hood).
It's a good idea to take a picture of the assembly before starting to refer to when you reassemble it.
Spread some shop towels or rags on the ground to catch any fuel which runs out of the filter when you remove it.
There is a hose clamp holding the filter in its housing - loosen with a screwdriver.
Pop out the two clips then pull the fuel lines out of the filter at each end.
Wiggle the filter out of its mounting bracket, then install the new filter and reinsert the fuel lines into it.
Be sure the clips are inserted correctly to avoid leaks. TIghten the hose clamp.
Replacement took about four minutes and required only a flat-blade screwdriver. Clips pop out and back in with only finger pressure.

Remove the spark plug wires, remove the spark plugs,replace them. Do this one cylinder at a time if you never did it. On that year you may need to remove the upper intake to access the plugs on one side. In that case go to a shop. This would not be a novice job.

There is a switch mounted on the arm of the brake pedal (under a plastic cover held on with 3 plastic push-pins). There is an electical connection attached to this switch. In my case one of the wires had broken and was not supplying electricity to the switch. By fixing the broken wire it allowed the shifter to properly move and got the brake lights working again.
