Question about 1998 Ford Contour
If Im not mistaken the fuel filter is on the pass side near back close to back wheel,,,Where ever it will have a plastic slip pins that once removed filter comes right off both sides,if you break these pins the new one comes with new ones, BUT,,,make sure you release gas pressure from gas line, up at fuel injecters on rail there is a place to hook up for cleaning fuel injecters,looks like a air valve on tires or aircondition fillup,,,,release pressure,, i use a old air hose 3 feet long so the gas i release dosent end up all over motor.So its not hardat all

Buy fuel filter go under car on driverside look up about mid car there should be a black cylinder attached to the fuel line you will need a standard screwdriver pliers if you have more than one kind great bring 3. and maybe an 8 mm socket(screwdriver slotted so 8 is only maybe) if the hose has a pressure fitting then you will need a 17 mm open end wrench and a 14 im only guessing its been a while since ive done one on a ford ive done them on three generations of tarus 2 rangers a contour long story short they where all different cant say if a previous owner changed the housing or ford just likes to keep us guessing. but its real easy 10 min job with clean up time if you have a little toolbox just bring it lift the car a couple inches just enough to slide under comfortably wheel lift should not be necessary. be sure to lay your spare tire under the drivers door frame for safty better ruin the spare rim than break a rib or nose goodluck
