How to change oil filter and fuel filter in Astra 1.7 DTi?

I've a 2001 Astra 1.7 DTi LS 16V diesel. I plan to do the oil, oil filter and fuel filter change myself on the car. I've all the parts.

I think the OIL FILTER is in a housing just behind the engine and close to top, which needs to be opened with a spanner and the oil filter is a paper cartridge type filter inside.

Regarding the FUEL FILTER, there is another plastic housing with a torx screw on top, is this the fuel filter? The new fuel filter is a paper type too which I think would go into its housing.

Do I need to bleed the system after I install new fuel filter?

Is there any special thing I need to take care while removing and installing fuel filter?

Thanks for your help in advance..How to change oil filter and fuel filter in Astra 1.7 DTi?I suggest you invest in a Haynes manual, it'll show you in photos exactly where %26amp; what the various bits are, and how to do the work - it'll pay for itself immediately.
