If anyone wants to use it or the Mods here can make a section for Do it yourself they may add this in there. I did it in maybe 30 mins. It's fairly easy. I included some pics so to be more helpful, PM me if you have any questions.

Equipment needed:

Only basic tools are need.
New Fuel filter
Spare rag to catch any leaking fuel when fuel lines are disconnected.
Low Profile Jack
Jack Stands

1. Disconnect the battery( I was instructed to do this from a Master Ford Mechanic).

2. Raise the vehicle by the driver side. Please use a Jack stand for safety.

3. Next, follow the fuel lines (which are clearly marked) to where the fuel filter cover is and loosen up the bolts that is holding it to the vehicle along with the black plastic tabs. As for the plastic tabs you can get the tab removers or just pull on the black fuel cover until it disconnects from the black tabs AFTER YOU HAVE LOOSEN UP THE BOLTS AND SCREWS.

Pointing at some of the bolts and screws that needs to be removed in order for the cover to come off.

Keep in mind that there is a screw/bolt all the way up front that also needs to be taken off.

4. Pull the Black cover off.

5. Loosen up the bolt/screws holding the fuel filter in place, there should be two, one top and one bottom.

6. Once the top and bottom bolts are off, one at a time you will push the green tabs in and pull the fuel line away from the filter.

7.Once you get the fuel filter off, replace with new one and make sure that the arrow on the fuel filter is pointing towards the front (engine).

8.Connect fuel lines, they will just snap back into place.

9.Put the bolts back to hold the fuel filter.

10.Put Black cover back on along with bolts/screws and black tabs.

11. Connect the battery.

12.Turn the key but do not start engine to let the engine/fuel system to cycle the fuel into the fuel filter. Turn key back and forth 3 times and then start the engine.

13. All done. :happy feet:
