    Where is the fuel filter?

    I need to change the fuel filter in my 02 wrx. I have a good amount of experience with a wrench and was wondering if someone could tell me where to locate the filter to save some searching time and how hard of an install a new fuel filter is. Thanks.

    Near the firewall in the engine bay on the driver side...should be fairly easy. SEARCH and you'll find more.

    I didnt expect it to be in the engine bay. Every other car that I owned, the filter was near the fuel tank. Thank you for the help.
