You do not tell us what year, but, generally they are found in front of fuel tank at right rear of car. You need filter/s, a socket to release fuel filter retainer, and a socket or screwdriver to release the hose clamps (fore and aft). release reatainert, loosen hose clapmps ( I replace the old ones), pull filter neck out of hose, get bathed in fuel, and then reverse the process.

It will be on the underside of the car either on the driver or passenger side. The car must be in the air for easy access to the filter. You will move back some plasic underside lining. Just look for the fuel lines running from the back of the car to see which side the filter will be on. There will be two small hose clamps. Carefull when removing and wear safety glasses to prevent fuel from getting in your eyes. After replacing, turn the key and give it a few seconds as fuel will need to run to the engine.
