    I got a fuel and oil filter plus new oil for my car and thought of giving it a service this weekend. I believe the oil filter is a cartridge type and looks to live on drivers side of engine. Just need to find fuel filter if anyone can help? Do i need any special tools to remove sump drain plug/fuel and oil filter as i haven't looked where it is yet? Thanks in advance for your help.

    The fuel filter is under the back of the car, by the drivers side wheel.
