theres a panel down beside the accelerator pedal... its behind it beside the ECU....

the schrieder valve is on the left hand side of the fuel rail look from the front of the car...

I find just takign it off does the de-pressurising, not like there's much resudla pressure anyways, and no much petrol will be spilt, it evapourate pretty quick anyways.

ive never bothered de-pressurising the fuel system when ive done work on these engines.

did a fuel filter the other day, got a face full of petrol

to get the fuel filter off, press the lugs in with a screwdriver, then twist the filter to one side, do the same on the otherside of the clip, and it should come off.
