It is obvious when you do it. Just unscrew it and take the filter out from inside. Replace the O ring seals and put the new filter in. Only do it up till it stops. You don't want to screw the filter housing down too tightly because it is only plastic.

Also have a rag handy. When you take the filter out, it will drip oil so hold a rag under it.

Done mine last week and like you, was looking for ages under engine for filter thinking WTF. Then I came up for a *** and staring right at me was the oil filter in the engine bay. Easy to do, but you can't avoid spilling oil when you take old filter out.
