I soaked mine with some WD40. Then I pushed the fitting into the filter, pressed the clip then gave the fitting a tug. You may need to use pliers. Just don't forget to relieve the fuel pressure and use goggles/safety glasses.

There is a tool that most auto stores sell that will release those fittings. They sell for around $10 and are worth it. Again make sure you bleed off the pressure and wear safety glasses before you disconnect them.

You don't need the tool. Its a waste of money.

I guess my statement was kinda misleading.
I bought the tool and then figured how to get it without the tool so I took it back
