I assume you mean the gas filter

you need a 13/16 open end wrench and a 5/8 line wrench to remove the lines from the filter.

Be carefull of the fuel that will come out. Use protection on your hands and saftey glasses.

The fuel tank has to be removed to gain acess to the top of the tank so you can remove the pump module.

It is a very involved job as the tank needs to be supported properly so you do not drop it. It is harder if it is full.

You may want to get a shop to do it for you as it is dangerous.
