Hi, here is a step by step guide to help you with this replacement.

Step1 Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the fuel tank's vapor pressure by slowly loosening the fuel cap. Wrap a shop towel around the fuel pressure valve as you connect a pressure gauge to the fuel pressure valve. Step2 Put the bleed hose of the gauge into a container that will hold the fuel. Open the gauge valve to bleed the system pressure. Drain any fuel that remains in the gauge into the container too. Step3 Disconnect the fuel line from the fuel filter with the help of a backup wrench. Compress the tabs and pull the fuel line outward to disconnect the quick-connect fitting from the fuel filter. Remove the fuel filter from the mounting bracket. Step4 Place the new filter in the mounting bracket and use a backup wrench to connect the fuel lines. Tighten the fittings to 20 ft-lbs. Reconnect the quick-connect fitting to the fuel filter. Step5 Connect the negative battery cable. Restore the pressure to the fuel system by turning the ignition on for 2 seconds. Turn it off for 10 seconds, then turn it on again. Check for fuel leaks in your Pontiac Grand Am.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: fuel filter location

The fuel filter is located underneath the vehicle in front of the gas tank

Squeeze the white plastic quick-disconnect tabs together and pull the inlet line away from the filter, then detach the outlet line from the fuel filter, then unbolt the filter mounting bracket to remove the fuel filter from the car..
