Fuel Filter Replacement on a 380 SEL

I have a 1983 380 SEL and I have determined I need a fuel filter. I have done a search, and seen many postings, mostly relating to diesel MB's. I am not sure if I need to replace the pre-filter (or if there is one), and if I do how to go about it. The fuel filter is next to the passenger rear wheel according to what I have read and seen.

I need to know if there is anything I need to do besides take a few bolts off and plug the fuel line (after the removal of the cap). Does a low fuel level make a difference when changing it? Any other bits of information are always welcome.
