I just replaced mine a couple weeks ago.
It is on the underside of the car, in between the two rear tires (closer to the driver's side wheel, though). Mine had a casing around it, so it was kinda hidden from view. Hope this helped!

How to change fuel filter on the 2006 scion xa


Open the hood and locate the fuel filter. If the fuel filter is not in the engine compartment, follow the fuel line from the tank until the fuel filter is located.

If the fuel filter has a clear case, inspect the filter element for dirt.

If the fuel filter case is not see-through, remove it from the fuel line. Drain the fuel from the filter into a container and inspect the condition of the fuel.

Install the new fuel filter making sure that the flow is in the correct direction. The arrow on the fuel filter is the direction of flow from the tank to the engine.

Where to find the fuel filter and how to replace it


The filter is located under the vehicle on the left frame rail near the front of fuel tank.

You must remove the bolt securing the fuel filter bracket strap. Use a fuel line quick release tool (available at any comercial parts store) to disconnect the fuel lines from the filter. Remove the filter.

To install, simply click the fuel lines onto the new filter and install the filter into the braket and secure with the bolt.

How do you change the fuel filter in a 97 jeep grand cherokee laredo, v6, 4.0L and where is it located?


It is located under the drivers side of the vehicle, towards the rear. Follow the metal tubing to the rear, and you will see a small canister. That is the filter. You just detatch it and install new. BEFORE you do, buy a new one and note how it is installed. Verry easy. BEWARE! gas will run out of BOTH ends of the tubing as you remove it and out of the filter. They are directional. You have to put it in a certain way. It will be marked with an arrow.
