6.0 fuel filter/fiters?

how many fuel filters are on the 6.0 and if theres more than one do we replace both of them at the same time? ive always had my dealer do fuel filter changes and i know of the one on the top of the motor but is there another one? i wanna change mine, but need to know if i need to buy one or two. thanks for any help guys.

primary fuel filter/water seperator (HFCM) is on the drivers side frame rail almost directly below the driver's seat

And yes, there are 2 total, the other one you already mentioned on top of the motor. Also, be very careful where you purchased your fuel filters as some of the cheaper filters will not come with the water-separating membrane on the primary fuel filter which is crucial. The cheapest place to purchase OEM fuel filters is from your local International Engine dealer. They are the exact same fuel filters that Ford sells(manufactured and made by Racor), just repackaged in a motorcraft box. I paid around $35.xx for both.

Yes on the lower filter a lot of fuel will spill wait till you close to empty to do it. Also use a socket on them that inner part that will fit a ratchet et will break very easily and give you grief. The plastic cap on the top is a $50 part at ford if it cracks.

The cap for the HFCM takes a 36mm socket (you can pick one up at NAPA, autozone, wherever for less than $10). There is a drain valve on the side of the HFCM that is a 6mm allen head screw. Drain it first then unscrew the cap, makes less mess. Kind of a tight working space for the HFCM but not too bad. Wear old clothes in case you take a diesel bath. I've never paid anyone to change my filters, I change them every 12-15k.
