1997 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

I'm trying to change my fuel filter and I can't get the filter off.I'm using the quick release tool (the little plastic circle).I've depressurized the fuel line. I've taken the clamps off. Am I skipping a step? Anything else to loosen up?
This should be easy but it's not.
Please help
Thanks

They're not as quick to get off as labeled. The easiest way I've found to work with the quick release is to put the tool on the fuel filter tube. Pull the gas line toward you onto the tool, then immediately push away. You may have to do this several times, but it'll eventually give.
