if you havent already, don't buy the fuel line tool from autzone/advance auto. it is cheap and a very poor fit and will cause you major knuckle damage.
go to NAPA and get the two little plastic discs made for Ford fuel and air cond quick release hoses. They fit perfect and work effortlessly.
just take your time and make sure the you put the new filter on facing the correct way. the whole job should take less than 10 minutes.
you do not need to release the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. just remove the neg batt cable then open the fuel cap on the gas tank. thats it and you will get very little gas comming out. the old filter however is very full of fuel and will spill out even after its off!!
