1999 Mercury Mountaineer Question: fuel filter quick conect is stuck

fuel filter quick conect is stuck how to remove i have the quick connect tool but it is stuck on it wont come off -
Answer 1
These disconnects have a rubber o-ring which gets stuck. I'd say, use the tool and maybe give the connection a drop of penetrating oil and keep trying. Good luck, and don't spray yourself with fuel when it comes apart. -

Comment 2
Best suggestion under the circumstances is to get it to a professional that does these several times a day. It's quick and easy for someone with a lift to get up there and remove it with some experience behind them that will keep the fuel line from getting fractured. A fractured fuel line is a bad situation...so it's best to elect for the safe bet. -
Answer 2
And -- use extreme care, because a stuck quick connect is far better than a broken quick connect! Good luck! -
