Fuel Filters

How do you get the fuel filter off of the fuel lines on a 1999 V8 Eddie Bauer Explorer?

I used an AC line tool which fits in the fuel line locks, i think it's a 5/8, not sure of it but you can get it from your local auto parts store, insert it along the fuel line and pull gently lines apart, put a rag to catch fuel spilling and de-pressurize system prior to attempting. Make sure to buy the plastic tool since the metal one might break or deform the fuel fittings.Good luck!
