    Replacing Fuel Filter

    Ill try this again with a more understandable subject...

    I am a fairly competent mechanic I work on 40million dollar Aircraft for a living so if it is to much to ask for instructions then just point me to the fuel filter (as I am not a car mechanic) and I can figure out the rest

    Is this an '02 WRX? That's the only model I'm intimately familiar...

    This is the fuel filter. It's located on the driver's side of the engine compartment.

    You'll need to vent pressure in the fuel lines before cracking the lines open. (Normal shadetree procedure is to open the gas cap on the vehicle and let sit for a considerable amount of time and make sure you have a shop rag/towel to catch any spilling fuel).

    You'll also need to disconnect the fuel lines from the unit. The hose clamps are small and can't take a lot of abuse so the recommended torque on them is ~1 lb/ft when tightening upon re-install.

    That should be it!

    P.S. The unit is black in color on my vehicle.

    Do you know which fuse controls the fuel pump? The manual does not say.

    One way is to disconnect the fuel pump relay. It's behind the passenger-side kick panel.
