I need to install a new fuel filter located in the right rear. Can you confirm the procedure of removing and installing? Is it simply removing the 2 metal hose clamps and replacing? Do I need to bleed the lines to avoid fuel spray. Not sure?

You should be able to pinch the lines mostly closed with something like this:

Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more

There are certainly other types but that is what I have. Before attempting this take a close look at the soft lines connecting to the fuel filter to make sure they are not brittle and going to crack, if that is the case then they will have to be replaced, not a big deal but a little messier.

But other than that, just pinch the lines shut, undo the clamps, pull off the old filter and put the new one on (in the correct orientation).
