It differs from model to model but they are normally under the left front floor pan and it's only a clamp and a couple of hose clips. Make sure the arrow on the filter goes with the flow i.e. points towards the engine

If you feel comfortable raising your car and getting under it to do the work, go for it. Otherwise, have a mechanic do it. It's not as simple as a lot of other cars where the fuel filter is in the engine compartment.

No mods - - - very happy as is!

No squeaks or rattles... unreal!
