Default 2004 Ranger fuel filter retainer clips

Hey ... I need some advice.... Yesterday I started changing my fuel filter on my 04 ranger edge (1st time on this truck). So I couldn't get the lines lose with the tool so I called the ford place and they said the clips just pl out... WRONG... The 1st one broke(green) so I called them back and told them what happen and they said oh u have the clips that push in... Thanks for telling me now... So I'm left with a broke clip and can't find one... I know they say u have to buy the whole line but I just can't imagine some out there has a fix for this or some other sort of advice.... Any info is appreciated... Also what is the spec size on the clip... Fuel line is 5/16 so do use that dimension for the clips?

Go to your local Ford retailer, insert $20, get kit of proper clips(sold as a kit per size, bring old one for comparison) and get your truck running. I've broken one before, the clips are expensive for no reason, and nobody carries them in the aftermarket because they generally aren't replaced when changing a fuel filter.
