Follow the rules. Double posting is not cool and will not get you an answer quicker.

It’s supposedly lifetime...I’m no engineer but I dont put much faith in anything “lifetime”. I want to say it is a 20$ part and like an hour to change it. I’d do the fuel pump while you’re in there, too. Just be careful and go slow popping the clips apart on the whole sending unit and don’t lose the “o” ring if you replace the fuel pump.

I work at Toyota and in 20 years I've never saw an fuel filter change. We've changed plenty of gas tanks. But filters and pump in toyotas are very sturdy so I won'T matter with that. If it is not broken, don't fix it.
