but removing it won't help much. if the tank is higher than the filter. too bad. it'll keep leaking

I've done hundreds of falcon fuel filters. All you have to do is release the pressure in the fuel tank by opening the fuel cap and place it back on. You will always lose abit of fuel regardless. Then crack the fuel line off at the filter just a bit and let any pressure if any to release. Once the pressure is gone just change the fuel filter. Easy. As long as you leave the fuel cap on, you'll only loose abit 200ml of fuel.

Well just to let you know the easiest way I found is to unplug the Fuel pump connector in the boot, which turns it off (its under a round plate held together by about 5 screws) give the car a crank and it takes all the fuel out the lines, during the change Id be lucky if I lost 100-200ml of fuel.
