No you remove It from the top of the tank you are gonna have to remove the convertible top tray and also the cover to the spare tire and the one to the left of it and remove your spare and you'll see a circle metal plate with a bunch of bolts holing it down on the left side of the car next to where the spare was and that's your fuel pump unbolt all the bolts and disconnect the hoses and electrical connector and pull it up and protect your interior cuz gas will spill.

the fuel filter is kinda wrapped around the fuel pump. It looks nothing like a standard fuel filter. It is the giant piece of plastic that the fuel pump connects to.
vps ap1 gave a pretty decent description on how to remove it. One thing I always do when I remove them is pull the fuel pump fuse and crank the engine over a couple times to help remove the excess fuel from the lines.

by crank you mean by starting the engine to pull the fuel through, not manually crank the engine?

when you buy one, is it just a filter or a filter-pump combo?

and another thing, seeing as only owned an s2000 a week! what part is the convertible top tray that vpsap1 referred to? I've not explored all round the car yet to know what everything is or looks like from memory. Just trying to work out what basic servicing I can do on it. so all help is appreciated.

Yes, after you pull the fuse go and start your car, it will run for a few seconds and then run out of fuel.
One question, why do you want to change the fuel filter.

I've just got the car, its 2003 and although got service history I'm unsure whats been done besides the basic oil and filter. I want to do some servicing so I'm sure the car is good for a few years to keep the car. Not much point to change the fuel filter in 3 years time then sell 6 months later!

In this part of the world they are designed as lifetime filters, unless you are having low fuel pressure issues they don't require replacement, the filter is pretty beefy compared to traditional filters in other vehicles.
