Default 94 Bronco fuel filter change help

94 Bronco, 5.8. I'm trying to replace the fuel filter and I have the little metal tool thing to take the lines off, however one is being a bitch and won't come off. I've tried prying the thing loose but it won't budge. The lines are SS braided and the filter isn't rusty. Anything I can do to fix this real quick?

Try using PB Blaster and hit it into the retention spring. Try and rotate the filter to make sure it is not seized to the lines.

Stupid question, but did you pull out the White plastic clips first?

Just because it is not rusted, does not mean it is not corroded.

sounds like he is talking about the style with the metal spring clip that is inside of the line, since the ones with the plastic clips dont need any special tools


make sure you push the line on as far as you can, and hold it there, while pushing the tool into the line...you need to get the clip away from the flare on the filter and then get the tool under the clip...if you start prying it you will damage the clip and possibly the line as well

Ford changed the fuel system lines around constantly, and still do, must be a job security thing.

any way, like mentioned above push the line on all the way insert tool and give it a good hard jerk back.
