Where is the fuel filter on a 1997 ford escort wagon?

It's in the engine bay, back on the firewall (the wall under the windshield)

It's a little tricky to get to the bottom clamps to un-hook it (there's stuff in the way), but it's not too bad

Don't forget to relieve the fuel pressure before removing it
(popping the button on the inertia switch in the hatch-the panel it's under is marked- and starting the engine till it won't run anymore)
Some fuel will still leak, so have some rags ready,but at least it shouldn't spray on you anyway
