Need help with leak!!!

I think I have a fuel leak coming from around the area of the fuel filter.

On the backside of the fuel filter is a yellow piece of plastic and a hose that comes out right below it. I believe the leak is coming from this area. I dont know what this piece is but if somebody could post as link for a detailed engine diagram or somebody knows what Im talking about might help.

I know this is not much information to go off of. Sorry any help will be good.

its the fuel bowl drain valve. Theres 2 O rings that go bad. Order the O rings, or the complete valve. Torx 20 I think, 4 of them... to remove it from the bowl. Replace, reinstall....
