I would put on some safety glasses go under the hood and release the fuel pressure at the valve on the fuel rail where u check the fuel pressure. Then get a drain pan to catch the fuel when u take the filter off. Put the drain pan under the fuel filter push the plastic clips to release the lines take the lines off. Take the bolts out of the bracket take the fuel filter out transfer over the plastic clips to the new filter unless u got new ones. Remove the old filter from bracket put new filter in the bracket. Bolt it back up put the lines on ur done. Let me know how it goes.
