Fuel Filter in NF Fairlane

Does anyone know where the fuel filter is located in a NF II Fairlane Ghia? Are there 2 filters?

Thanks in advance

Simon

The easiest way to find your fuel filter would be to get under your car, starting from the fuel tank, and follow the fuel line to the motor. This is how i found my filter in the EA. Mine was towards the front, kinda near the front passenger door.
Happy searching.....

EA Fairmont Ghia : 3.9L MPFI, 2.5" cat back sports exhaust, K&N panel filter. Pioneer head unit, pioneer 4" three way fronts, Pioneer 6" 3 way rears, 2x 12" subs, blue interior light.

Don't forget to relieve the fuel pressure. Watch your eyes when undoing it.

Watch your eyes? How do you do that? I meant to say "protect your eyes"

There is only one filter under the left side rear passenger side, you probably need a 14mm pipe spanner and 17/18mm(?) spanner as a lot of them are very hard to get off as the pipe flare has flared out inside the filter.

I want a EBII Ghia wagon or EF/EL 351W twin headlights, twin exhaust, gas injection and TWIN TURBO'S!
