Hi Kent, about the only thing that you need to worry about on that model is leakage from the fuel hoses when you start moving things around. I try to be as delicate as possible with the hoses. You'll need to loosen the pinch screw that tightens the filter into the bracket, remove the two hoses and slide the filter out the end of the bracket. Click here for the workshop instructions. Let me know if you have any questions.

No, but disconnect the negative battery cable if you are concerned.
