Default Pictorial Instructions of Fuel Filter Change

I'm new here and I have been performing routine scheduled maintenance on my 99 Bonnie based upon all of your cool and informative instructions and part recommendations. In the past, I haven't maintained my own car, but decided to give it a go after several bad experiences at shops (dealership and 3rd party shops) over the past year. Basically, I can't find a good place to take my car to have it worked on, so I am doing everything I can myself now. Today, I changed my fuel filter, but didn't see any tutorials here about the procedure (I may have missed it, so forgive me if I did).

I found what I think is a pretty good tutorial regarding how to change a fuel filter at this link and wanted to pass it on to those wanting this (It is based upon a Grand Prix, but seems to match our cars pretty nicely besides the location of the filter):

http://www.pfyc.com/supportfiles/gasfilter/

I am not affiliated with this store and did not use any parts from them, but the tutorial seems very good (even though it is for a Grand Prix) and I wanted to share this with other newbies like me to sort of provide some information back in exchange for everything I have absorbed from here. I hope you veterans out there can look it over and verify the information is good. I used them, so I hope everything is kosher.

My next job is to change my brakes with the RSM rotors from Ty and the Raybestos QuietStop pads many of you have recommended.

I also want to thank all of you for the information you have provided me over the past 6 months. Thanks all.

-Chris

Bear in mind some 92-99 Bonnevilles have the filter towards the front of the car. I'm not sure what year changed.

crud.. I did mine today. Might I have wrecked something by not using the valve? I just pulled the quick connects, and put the new filter in.

yea, I swear the pale, and the bottome of the car was clean, then I dropped the filter in it, and saw lots of little rocks and dirt. Probably only second time it was done.
