The fuel filter is located under the rear seat in a compartment above the fuel tank.



  1. Reduce the internal pressure of the fuel lines and hoses by completing the following operations.
    • After removing the rear seat cushion, disconnect the fuel pump harness.
    • Start the engine. Allow it to stop by itself, then turn the ignition switch OFF.
    • Disconnect the battery negative (-) terminal.
    • Connect the fuel pump harness connector.
  1. Remove the eye bolts while holding the fuel filter nuts securely. CAUTION: Cover the fuel filter with a shop towel to avoid residual gasoline from splashing.
  2. Remove the fuel filter mounting bolts, then remove the fuel filter from the fuel filter clamp.
