I have never replaced my fuel filter before, I read a Haynes manual and it said something about depressurizing the fuel line, but how do you do that besides opening the gas cap?

unscrew the banjo bolt above the feedin line.. and then all it is takin out the pipes and unscrewing the filter out of its seat.. place some rags around the filter area to absorb the fuel that mite spill out.. tada

Yeah, do what Accelerazn said. It's pretty simple and hard to screw up. By depressurizing your filter, you're just letting out some fuel slowly so it doesn't hit you in the eye or something. Attach the new filter and then start your car. You'll probably have to run the starter a while to get the fuel pumping through the new filter. Then the car should start right up.

use a flare wrench when taking the filter off, standard wrenches love to strip the bolts which isn't good. another thing to help depressurize the line is to unscrew your gas cap that lets some of the pressure escape.
