Default Removing fuel lines from filter?

How do I do it? I have a 2004 3.0. I'm stuck until I replace this thing. Thanks.

There are clips on each end of the hose going to the filter, you can use a special tool for it or pop them out with needles nose pliers, just be careful of the hoses. The new filter should come with new clips and dont forget to remove the gas cap before you pop the filter off

I was afraid to break the clips. I will go back in the store to see if they have any. None came with the filter.

I have a 2004 4.0..... all I had to do was pinch it with my fingers and pull back. You need no special tool but yes, they sell clips if you break them for some reason. Make sure to pull the fuel pump relay and try to start the truck... this will get fuel pressure out of that line and you will not make as big of a smelly mess.

I have a different kind of connector. My haynes manual didnt even have the kind of connector in it. I finally got it off with a tool that the guy at autozone said I would need after I explained it to him. It worked. I had some how gotten a hole in the filter. I nursed it up the road to the autozone and finally got it swapped out. Thanks for your guys help.
