Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Your car should only have a fuel strainer. This strainer is not serviceable and is located on the fuel filter assembly in the fuel tank. It only gets replaced when the pump is replaced. If you need more information on this let me know.

Thanks. This is the in tank filter. You need to open the tank access panel to be able to replace this.

That is my question. Is it on passenger side tank or driver side tank. I open rear seat passenger tank but did not see it. Which side please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know it is inside the tank but lm not sure.just tell me is it inside or out side and which side. Thanks
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 1 year ago.
On the passenger side. The fuel pump assembly should be in there also. You will need to remove both to replace the filter.
