Both of these filters should be inspected and cleaned at the annual condition inspection.
Bill, you made me curious and I referenced the Precision Airmotive EX-5 servo manual. It reads " The airplane's fuel filter needs to be maintained to ensure that the servo gets clean fuel. The fuel filter inside the servo is a last chance filter. This filter does not need to be checked or cleaned unless it is suspected that contaminates have entered the fuel line after the aircraft's fuel filter."

Hopefully, I saved you some headaches at annual
