Fuel filters are not fun on these. Wait until you are low on fuel to do them. Pop the filter off of the cap before removing it from the HFCM. You can also pop the wiring harness out of the frame, but I haven't had to do that on my truck yet. It makes it easier though.

Take the cap off of the top filter, drain the water seperator, and you will save yourself a diesel bath. Go in reverse to put it back together. You will need a 36mm socket to do it.

You say to do the fuel filter change when low on fuel to save a diesel bath, but I do mine now when the tank is full. I just did mine last weekend.

I have never gotten a diesel bath. I just open the drain and drain the diesel into a water bottle (not to be re-used for water...lol) and once it stops draining I remove the filter and replace it and then when I am completely done with the frame mounted filter I move on to the engine mounted one.

The one time I waited until the truck was low on fuel, which was the third time I changed the filters, I thought I was never going to get the truck to start again, and yes I did do the priming first. Every time I change them with a full tank it starts right up.
