Garage
In the gastank, under the backseats at a 5 door car.
Do notice the danger when opening the fuel tank. Take precautions not to have any sparks, flames, cigarettes, hot places and other stuff within 5 meters from where you work. Usually the entry to the fuel tank is very rusted. You will need some lubricant to get that to open. Ventilate the area well too!

I was planning, just as a simple maintenance, to change it. Forget it. Thanks PIM.

There's a another fuel filter under the hood.

It's by the driver side strut, under the fuse / relay box.

Pain in the butt to get to also.

Pim, that's the filter for the regulator/return system.

There is the normal filter under the hood.
Only use a toyota filter please. They come with the correct size crush washers and it's cheap. 9/10 times the aftermarket filters don't thread quite right in the fuel line and leaks can happen easily.

Here's another pic


1995 Celica - ST205 3sgte swapped
1994 Celica - Redtop Beams swapped
1998 Rav4 - winter beater - Redtop Beams swapped and actually fun to drive now.

THAT was the one I was referring to. I guess if anyone is going to make an engine swamp, that is the time to do it. Thanks Batman722 and Sig228.

ive seen threads from several members that the filter is a pita to remove also mensa do you remember the article from off-road.com where they used a highflow gas pump from a subaru in the rav4? i know you are always doing performance oriented changes in your car, that might be a decent one to undertake
