Removing the fuel lines from the filter DOES require a special tool. I made the mistake of buying the universal AC/Fuel line tool - this will not fit the fuel filter. There is another tool - small plastic ring remover available in a couple of sizes. Find the right size for the fuel line connector and use this instead, it should fit over the stem between the connector and filter. The scissor-like aluminum universal tool does not fit.
If you accidentally break the connector, an aftermarket one can be found - but it will take A LOT of searching and will most likely have to be ordered.
