I came across this service bulletin that you will find helpful- I do believe the VCF is above the fuel tank; but if you call any diy auto parts store like NAPA, AutoZone, Pep Boys, etc.or even the parts department at Dodge, for pricing, they'll tell you exactly where it is located and they may even print out the schematic for you. Best wishes on your project. BTW, did you're "check engine" light go on? Did you get an OBD-II fault reading? Or fail an emissions test? Just curious for my own knowledge.

DISCUSSION: Customer may report that the vehicle is hard to fill with fuel or that the fuel pump nozzle
shuts off repeatedly while trying to fill vehicle.
This customer complaint can occur due to a number of different causes. The fuel tank is
the least likely cause of this condition. The following Diagnostic procedure can be used to
diagnose the issues.
DIAGNOSIS: 1. Is the vehicle a LX/LE/LC/L2?
a. Yes >> proceed to Step #2
b. No >> proceed to Step #4
2. Idle the vehicle 60 to 90 seconds upon stopping.
3. Does tank refill properly?
a. No >> proceed to Step #4
b. Yes >> Inform the customer to idle the vehicle for 60 to 90 seconds upon stopping if
vehicle was driven aggressively. This is due to the fact that on the LX/LE/LC/L2 the
fuel tank is a unique saddle tank design and needs 30 to 60 seconds while the
engine is running to level the fuel in both half's of the fuel tank. Allowing the vehicle
to idle for this amount of time will let the fuel pump transfer fuel to the left side tank,
opening the control valve and allowing normal fuel filling.
4. Disconnect the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel tank.
5. Attempt to refill fuel tank.
6. Does tank refill properly?
a. Yes >> Proceed to Step #7
b. No>> Proceed to Step #11.
7. Reconnect the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel tank.
8. Disconnect the other end of the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel filler tube.
9. Attempt to refill fuel tank.
10. Does tank refill properly?
a. Yes >> Replace fuel filler tube.
b. No >> Replace the vapor recirculation tube.
11. Disconnect the control valve to EVAP canister tube at the fuel tank.

12. Reconnect the vapor recirculation tube at the fuel tank.
13. Does tank refill properly?

hose), or filter. Diagnose appropriately.
b. No >> Replace the control valve to EVAP canister tube.

SOUND LIKE FUEL PUMP GOING BAD.BUT CHECK THE EVAP CHARCOAL CANISTER FILTER IF GAS SOAKED REPLACE IT REPLACE GAS CAP MAKE SURE GAS CAP IS THE PRESSURE VACUUM TYPE.ALSO CHECK VACUUM PURGE VALVE VACUUM HOSE TO CARBURETOR AND CHECK VACUUM HOSE TO CHARCOAL CANISTER FOR BLOCKAGE RESTRICTION OR BROKEN AND MISSING.
The fuel filter on this vehicle is located inside the fuel tank and is a part of the fuel pump module. As such, it can only be serviced by replacing the pump module assembly. In theory, these are a lifetime filter and I've only seen a couple of them plug so far and those were due to dirty fuel that came out of a private service tank. The only real test to see if the filter is restricted is to have someone road test the vehicle with a fuel pressure test gauge hooked up to the fuel rail so the actual pressure can be observed while the vehicle is under load. Hope this helps out!
Some of the Sebrings have two filters(one is called a sock).The sock(which all sebrings have) is located in the fuel tank itself on the pump module.If this model is the JXI then the external filter is located on the belly of the car between the tank and drivers rear seat. I hope I could help!!!
The fuel filter located in the tank is good for the life of the pump and does not need replacing. The filter usually changed is under the car - follow the fuel lines till you find the small barrel type container with a fitting on each end. (Note the direction of flow indicated by the arrow on the filter.)
The fuel filter on the Sebring is tucked up next to the tank towards the passenger side rear wheel. You can to pick up the fuel filter from Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone for $25.00 Purolator Fuel Filter Part Number: F55302
Good luck and hope this helps. Auto Zone can give you the step by step to replacing the fuel filter free of charge.
