2000 Fors Explorer, changing the fuel filter

I have the tool they sell to accomplish this. I took the clips off and gave
it a go following the picture on the package. It doesn't want to budge it
seems? Any insight or trick to this I should know? Thanks for any help
here.

I have a set of these (plastic). The package said use the 3/8 tool for Ford
fuel filters, not the 5/16. The 3/8 worked great.

Re: 2000 Fors Explorer, changing the fuel filter

In our area, it is commonplace for these connections to load up with mud,
sand and road debris.... This can pack in behind the reatainer spring making
it difficult to collapse the spring.... repeated efforts without cleaning
the connection can even damage the springs so that they wont hold any more.
