Its either the fuel filter if it's a silver cylinder looking thing, or it the fuel accumilator this is a little smaller than the filter and should be around the same size as the pump

Yes it's important. It was designed into the system as a whole and unless you are an engineer I would recommend replacing it. The Robert Bosch Corp knows what it was thinking when it designed the fuel system.
