depressurize fuel system

Hello,

I have a 2001 Ranger 2.3 liter 5 speed. 173k miles
How do I depressurize the fuel system? There is a hose coming from top of engine going to a round device with a 2" knob on it. On the side of this device is a small "bike tire" air stem.
Is this bike tire stem how I would depressurize prior to changing fuel filter?I want to avoid fuel spray.

Thanks

Re: depressurize fuel system

You could remove the fuel pump realay or fuse and run it until it quits. What are you needing to do?
