Little white knob under fuel filter. Haven't even touched mine after 10k... probably will sooner or later. I trust my fuel sources. Remember, diesel fuel looks like water, so drain an ounce or so, then check to see if there is any separation of fuel and water. You will probably just drain good ol' fuel.. smell will give it away..

Location of water separator on f350 diesel 2000?

Yellow lever attached to back of fuel filter in "V" of engine, the drain hose ends on front passenger side of block, under a heater hose, it drains about 6 to 8 ounce of fuel when drain is opened, and you want to catch the fuel in a clean jar to see if it has water. You may have to drain it a few times to get all the water out. Start engine between draining of separator, and make sure to close the drain valve after each draining. The water in fuel light should reset it's self.
