How to replace fuel filter

(1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SE)
in Anacortes, WA on March 26, 2011
I'm a 63 yo woman who hasn't worked on a car for years. Just need basic instruction like:
1. Where is the fuel filter?
2. What tools do I need?
3. Anything other than simply taking it off and replacing it I should be aware of?
