Boreas is on a distinguished road
Default Where is the fuel filter?

I stuck my head under the car, checked both in front and in the back of the rear wheel well on the passenger'* side for the filter. I ran the line with my fingers to the tank, and then to the front before it went into the compartment and yet I cant find the sucker.

Where the fuel line turns up into the engine compartment. Kinda where the passenger'* right foot would be if it went through the incline in front of the floor pan.

Let'* not confuse Boreas. A 99 IS farther back. We're talking about a 93 here. It'* under the right front passenger footwell, just inside the frame rail.
