There are quick connects on both sides, BUT! The "front" side also have the pressure regulator and a vacuum line connected to it, so I suggest to leave it as is, and just unscrew the filter from the regulator. You will need two pretty large wrenches (don't remember the sizes off the top), or a wrench for the filter and a channel locks to hold the regulator. Also, put a copper crush washer between the filter and a regulator to prevent leaks.
Quick connects do not require any tools, I just used needle -nosed pliers to push it in. Also, on the regulator, there is a valve to release fuel pressure, I suggest you do that before disconnecting any lines. Alternatively, you can pop the fuel pump fuse and start the car and let it run until it dies.
