2nd Fuel Filter-How?

Good afternoon fellow Alpiners. I have had a fun-filled weekend of maintenance to our 2005 40MDTS. I was easily able to change the primary fuel filter, oil filter and drain the oil. I can spot the second fuel filter, but I don't see any way to get to it outside of removing the starter to move it out of the way. How does everyone accomplish this? I'm pretty sure I don't have any access under the bed in our model.

Thanks in advance.

I know when I took mine in to have it serviced they spent two hours to get to that second filter. The moral of this post is don't feel like you're doing something wrong it's just hard to get to

I ended up removing the air cleaner. That helped in gaining access. I also used a filter wrench that had a flexible handle which is a necessity with the tight area. Removal was fairly “easy”. Putting the new one one is quite the challenge especially after filling it with fuel and the also getting the gasket in the right place. Don’t be in a hurry. Took me about 2 hours.
