Fuel Filter on 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

How do I relieve the pressure from the fuel system so I can change out the filter? I was told to remove the fuel pump relay with the car running and it should then stall out. However that did not work.

Fuel is highly flammable but if you place rags over the fuel filter and change the fuel filter with the engine dead cold, the fuel pressure release will not cause a problem as the discharged fuel will be trapped by the cloth. Avoid gasoline contact with eyes, ans mop up any fuel spay prior to starting the engine
