Default RE: Replacing Fuel Filter?

Well, I can see not being sure of your mechanical ability, but changing a fuel filter is literally a rip off if you pay for it to be done. Even my little brother could do it. All you have to do is unplug and plug, there's nothing at all to mess up (except dumping gas on your face, but that's all part of the fun right?). That's like not changing your own oil when all you have to do is unscrew one bolt, wait, screw it back in, then pour some oil back in. Some of these easier jobs can help you get a feel for working on your car and help out your mechanical abilities.

The filter is located above the gas tank toward the front of the tank. While looking at the car from below, it kind of sits 6-8 inches back from where your differential sits (between the diff. and the tank). Not a hard task at all. Just be careful or you'll drink gas like I did the other night.
