V10 fuel filter

does anyone have any idea how to access the fuel filter on the v10? And secondly does anyone know whether the fuel filter is a water separator as well?
Thanks Winston

I think water separators are diesel only

Yours is an F53 chassis (vs Class C where the fuel filter is located under the driver’s door)
Check Google and Utube videos on how to replace. It’ll give you what you need to know.

On EDIT...
“At least as far back as 2013 the filter is an integral part of the pump/fuel gauge assembly in the tank. Supposedly it's a "lifetime" filter that should last a minimum of 100,000 miles.”

So you’d need to change out the integrated pump/filter assembly

In-tank filter socks have been standard for many years (my 1961 Corvair Rampside has one). The sock's pores are small enough to keep most water from getting into the engine. That is why it has been always recommended to add some "dry gas" to a couple tankfuls of gas before freezing weather occurs. Now that most gas has alcohol blended dry gas is not necessary. Carburetors can swallow fairly large particles that may get by the in-tank filters, but fuel injectors can not, so a supplemental very fine fuel filter is added in line. About 2007 Ford decided to upgrade the fuel system and changed the in-tank sock to a fine particulate filter negating the need for a in-line supplemental filter

Thanks all. And yes the fuel filter on this 2017 is integral to the fuel pump. The other question about the water separator i mention has been on both my gas powered boats.always was convenient to just check the site glass and dump any water that was trapped.thanks again
