I'm winning so far still need help someone

I have successfully changed the oil on my 145 cloverleaf and successfully changed the oil filter and the air filter I have many cuts and bruises on my hands but now I am about to tackle the fuel filter but this seems a little bit more awkward as I already jammed the wrench in the car as I was removing the outer casing (its bolted on like Fort Knox which is strange for an alfa I thought I would just have to tug at it and it would come away in my hand) but after much tugging and pulling I managed to free it.

Apparantly you have to de pressurise something to fit the fuel filter can someone help me as to what this means?

Do I just unplug the lines and plug in the new one?

I have managed to save myself 100 as some joker wanted that much for the work I am carrying out.

I don't know if there is a specific technique, but if you open the petrol cap you can hear the pressure release.

Cheap and cheerful!

Don't worry, some parts of the fuel system are at pressure with the engine off and you can get a spray when you disconnect them. The depressurise advice is rightfully there to stop you spraying petrol everywhere, I would just put a cloth around the joint to catch and drips and disconnect it slowly, make sure you're not smoking at the time
