Looking for the Fuel Filter on my '05 9-3 Aero?? Help!

Any and all help is appreciated! I had a scare today, after the flakey gas gauge threw me off (told me I had a quarter tank, when I had NOTHING!) Ran out of gas, had to walk two miles to buy a 2 gal can, fill it and sit and wait and hope that was the problem. 115k on the car and I need to do some TLC work. Starting with a fresh new fuel filter. I love to rip and tear but haven't seem to have found it yet!??

The fuel filter on all 9-3SS models is an internal filter strainer/sock. It can't be replaced without removing the fuel tank and pump therefore it is considered a non serviceable part.

The reasoning you may have a fuel gauge error is due to a faulty fuel sending unit which is highly common on the 9-3.

Yes it is... it's on the Pump assembly; the sender part is about 85 dollars. There's about 2 or 2 1/2 hours Labor involved by a competent shop if the tank is pretty empty (less drain and refill time).
