Fuel Filter Replacement How-To?

I just clicked over 60,000 miles on my 2003 V6, and following the suggested maintenance schedule I'm due for a fuel filter change.
Does anyone know where I could find a decent (ideally illustrated) how-to?
I know it can't possibly be that complicated, but I figured I'd ask before I spilled gas all over the engine compartment.
Thanks for any help!

It's easy with the fuel line disconnect tool.

Re: Fuel Filter Replacement How-To?

its easy, you need a little tool to remove a fitting, other than that its a little gas in your face and your done.

you should change the fuel filter EVERY year, do it as you change the coolant (yup every year on that as well....)

ford likes you to take your time so stuff breaks.
