To get rid of the pressure before removing any lines pull the fuel pump relay off and run the engine until it dies, this will drop the fuel pressure way down. There will still be fuel in the hose but it won't be under 40 psi of pressure, just be ready for some to come out when you unbolt the filter.

I think when I changed mine I didnt do the pull the fuse trick, its easy to change your lines may be corroded so perhaps some PB Blaster to help things along
