GAS LINE LEAKS ?

1996 Buick Reatta

1996 Buick Lesabre
I have a gas line leak at the back of my fuel filter that is located on the rear passenger side of my 96 lesabre, just ahead of the rear tire. It looks like there is some kind of press on plastic fitting that attatches the fuel line to the fuel filter. It dosent always leak but if I wiggle it at all it pours out like crazy. My question is will I need a special wrench to work on this problem and is there an o-ring or something in there that can be replaced or will I need to replace the whole gas line? Please help !
Thanks, Bruce

Either your filter lost the gasket or the line isn't in all the way. And yes there is a specia l tool to disconnect it. Usually the filter has the gskets with it when you replace it.
