You're talking about the side with the quick connector right? If so this same thing just happened to me and heres what I did (it's not pretty). When I climbed under the car I noticed that 1/4 of the plasic connector was already broken. I tried to squeeze the remaining 3 sides and pull off the line but it wouldn't budge so I went down and bought a removal tool but it didn't help at all. Finally after trying for some time I got frustrated and just broke the rest of the plastic connector off. I used a very small screwdriver and some needlenose pliers to pry the rest of the plasic out from inside the connector until I had all of it gone, all the way around. Then I disconnected the fuel line side, popped the filer out of its retaining bracket and yanked on it. I think at one point I even tried to knock it off with a rubber mallet LOL. I finally came off but I still had a small metal clip inside the line that was for the original quick connector. I pulled it out with the needlenose pliers, connected the new filter to the fuel line and then slid the other end onto the quick connector side. Hope that helps.

How do you replace the fuel filter on a 2005 Ford F150?

The best way is to take it to a dealer, you need a special tool to remove the front line off of the filter , also if you don't remove the clip on the rear line correctly you will break it. I know, I wanted to save a few dollars by doing it myself , I broke the clip, it is made into the line, It cost me almost $400, to get it replaced, only cost about $55 for the dealer to change the filter. good luck
