Fuel Filter Pressure?

Was checking the Haynes and Chiltons last night. I want to change out the fuel filter on my Yj. Manuals keep referring to let the pressure out before disconnecting filter. but don't say how. Anybody know how to release the pressure before disconnecting this filter?

There's a valve on the fuel rail in the engine bay. Should be towards the front, at least that's where it is on my dad's Cherokee. I'm sure there's a special tool designed to do it a cleaner way, but you can always take the cap off and stick a screwdriver in there to relieve the pressure.

Easiest way is to pull the fuse or relay and start it till it dies, no more fuel pressure.
