I had the same problem. The connectors have four tabs that lock over the collar o f the filter line. I used a hacksaw to nick the line on the old filter and bent it until it broke off. The fuel did spray some so watch for the mess! Then I made a sleeve from an old piece of sheet metal and slid it over the line left in the connector. I pulled the sleeve and line out together with needle nose pliers. Worked well but it was meesier than it should have been but I wasn't going to the dealer to buy some special tool.
