is this the 3.4l?

I recently replaced one on my sister's alero.

the fuel filter is right next to the gas tank, and is connected with a quick-connect fitting which was green in my case. I was very frustrated when i couldn't get it off. it took me a while to be able to spin it and see the back side of it. after realizing that it was some type of c-clip I was able to push both sides of it until it slid out. the best advice i can give you is to open the obvious tab and then push it perpendicular to the fuel line, away from the open side. it slides easily once you know which way to push it. then you pull apart the connector and filter to separate the two. the other side is a screw and not worth mentioning how to loosen. just use plenty of wd-40. also make sure you watch your eyes, about a cup of gasoline will drip out of the filter.
