22RE fuel filter change

I recently began to notice hesitation on my 93 toyota pickup with 100K miles. I think it may be a fuel filter problem and I would like to change it. How hard of a job is this? Are any manuals helpful?

I have a 94 4WD P/U with a 22RE also.
I wanted to change my fuel filter for maintenance reasons.
Not only is the filter very difficult to even see, it's almost impossible to change.
I inquired about it at the local dealership. They verified that the job is very difficult and that if the fittings break (apparently very common), they're not responsible.
The filter is about $30 and according to the labor time manual the job takes 1.5 hours at $80 per hour!!!!!!!
Needless to say, I had no choice but to let them do it.

Watching the mechanic, I'm glad I did. The truck was on the lift and he had his arms fully extended up into the engine compartment. He skinned his knuckles and cursed the entire time.

If you really want to change the filter yourself, there's always away... Those fittings will definitely break if any one try to take an ordinary wrench to it. There are special tools for the job. But according to splicingdan, the price is not bad at all.
For all special tools, check out Snapon.com These tools are not cheap... try to look at toyota tools

Hey fellas, take off the passenger tire and the inner fender flap and the filter is right there above the starter. remove the oil filter for a oil change at the same time and its 3 bolts that are a bit hard to access but not really that bad. The bolt that holds the fuel lines on is a banjoe bolt with two copper rings to seal it from leaks. They come with the new filter. Now I might catch some flak here, but I don't bolt them back in their bracket, I tie them off to the inner fender so that they are accessible. Never had a problem with one yet. Take the banjoe bolt loose slowly to relieve the pressure. Hold the filter with one wrench while you turn the banjoe bolt. Really not that bad. Once you do one, you won't pay the 80 bucks and hour any more, because the fuel is so bad now, you have to change them more often. Tim
