Default Is changing the fuel filter in an S80 hard for a DIY?

I am somewhat handy with the tools and my father in law was a mechanic at trade.

My S80 has 97K on it and was wondering what I should do on this next oil change? I thought air filter, but then thought about plugs and fuel filter?

I hate to drag it to the dealer as I am afraid it will cost $500 to do the above! OUCH!

Is changing the plugs and fuel filter a tough job or can an average joe do this themselves? Any links to fuel filter changes?

Thanks
Spankey!

They are both very easy.

The fuel filter is located directly in front of the passenger rear tire, and has a rather large clamp around it secured with one bolt to the chasis. The lines going into the and out of the filter had a quick disconnect type fitting. You can buy a Haynes manual that was published in the UK for ther V70 & S80 5 cylinder models that can show a few pictures of it. The ISBN number is 978 1 84425 263 3. I got mine through IPD. Thrie product number is 9L4263/Haynes Man V79/S-80 98-05 I paid $27.95, already saved big bucks just by having some direction.
