Just a thin screwdriver will do the trick. But be gentle, there are plastic clips under the line. Don't wanna break them. And be sure to release the pressure fromt eh fuel system before you attempt this fix... Take the gas cap off for a minute or so. Fuel will spill when removing the filter, don't think this is a good backyard fix.

The 2006 fuel filter on the Jetta diesel is located in the engine bay passenger side at the front. It is a silver canister with 4 rubber lines coming into it. Five or six screws hold on the top of the canister and the top can be tied back until the filter is replaced. I did not take the lines off. The replacement filter couldn't be found at my local auto stores and 3 different ones are made for 2006 jetta diesel and is VIN # specific. The filter cost 39.00 at the volkswagon dealership. The filter slides over a 1" collar and was very hard to remove. I had to destroy the old one to get it out. The new one slides back on is also very tight. Hope this helps.
