You'll need to have a fuel line disconnect tool. This tool can be made of plastic or metal, but the utilization is the same. You can purchase these tools at most auto parts stores. The fuel lines have a "quick disconnect" end on them where the filter attaches. After you've relieved the pressure from the fuel line (line pressure's usually around 60psi so you should wear eye protection). Techniques vary you can remove the fuel pump relay, and start the engine till it shuts down, or (needs another special tool). Attach hose from tool to test port on fuel rail by injectors and drain fuel into suitable container. You can also remove the cap from the test port and with a rag covering the port to catch fuel, depress the schrader vale (like a tire valve). This isn't really the best way,because gasoline can get on you and will inevitably get on the engine. Not always a good situation if engines hot. (To be honest with you, at work I usually just slightly disconnect the line at the filter. Only enough to bleed the fuel pressure off and let it drain into a bucket.) To remove, you'll have to insert the tool into the line around the filter neck at one end. You'll then be able to separate it from the filter. Repeat on other end. You may have to wiggle and twist a bit, as the filter necks might be sticking to the o-ring seal in the connector. Don't force it, as you can damage the connection, and you'll then be purchasing new fuel lines. Most of these filters are retained in a bracket on the frame rail using a big hose clamp. Naturally you'll have to loosen that to pry out and remove the filter. Aside from the initial fuel spillage, and any fuel that might drain down through the lines, the fuel in the tank will remain in the tank. Typically the filter is mounted well above the tank where the pickup tube is located, so siphoning won't be an issue.
I hope this helps

Use lots of wd40 on tank strap bolts. If they bigin to bind tighten them up and losen again to get rust out of threads. If you remove the straps, why not remove the fill neck and lower tank? Much easier to work that way!!!
