Question about Ford Explorer
Your fuel filter is located under the driver's seat, on the frame rail. You will need a 13mm socket/wrench, and a flat screwdriver to undo the supporting bracket/clamp respectively. A special tool is required on most models to release the fuel line; however, it is relatively cheap and can be obtained at your local parts store. It is used like a quick-disconnect to undo the fuel line. Hope this helps, James Booth.

The fuel filter is located at the top front of the gas tank (under the truck). To access it you have to remove a metal heat shield that is bolted to passenger side of transmission crossmember. 3 bolts hold it on. Then you need to remove a plastic shield that is held on by 2 nuts.

The fuel filter is on the passenger side under the door near the front wheel well. It is behind a curved shield and a flat plate covering the fuel filter that is marked "fuel filter replace".
There is an aluminum plate held on with 3 13mm bolts. Remove it. Behind it there is a black plastic shield, held on with 2 10mm nuts. Remove that and you will see the fuel filter, and the bracket that holds it on.
