I have changed my air filter and oil filter & Oil and am now looking to change my fuel filter.

I've read that the fuel line is under pressure even with the engine off so what steps do I need to take to change it?

I have searched the How Do I section with no luck.

P.S. It may be an ovbious/easy job but having NEVER done it before I wouldn't know so go easy on me peeps :)

Technically speaking you should disable the fuel pump and crank the engine over for a minute or so.......but there is no need.
Just undo one end of the fuel filter and you will have a squirt of fuel come out, the longer you wait after the engine has last run the smaller the squirt.
When the fuel has stopped flowing procede and replace filter.

Obviously no smoking whilst doing this.....
