The fuel pump is considered a lifetime unit but the thing at the base of the fuel pump is just a strainer. There is a second one in there too.
The actual fuel filter is a combined fuel filter/pressure regulator. It sits on top of the fuel pump module and is accessible once the tank is dropped, without removing the fuel pump.
