Try to spray the clips down with a little penetrating oil(WD-40 or something)let it sit for a few minutes and then use the tool that usually comes with the filter.The first time I saw the tool I didn't know what it was and I threw it away,I did figure out that you can take 2 small flathead screwdrivers and get it out but you have to be real careful not to break the clips.They do sell repair kits for where the fuel lines connect to the filter if you have to cut them but I suggest you buy the kit before you cut the lines.

SOURCE: removing fuel filter cannot get lines to

The big problem with these connectors is dirt. Use WD-40 or similar solution and some picks to clean out the dirt then it should come apart.

How to change the fuel filter on a daewoo lanos

Your best choice would be to get a fuel line disconnect tool. I believe daewoo uses the same type as those used on GM vehicles. Through personal experience, I recommend being very careful as the plastic disconnect on the side leading from the fuel tank can be very brittle and easily break.

Sometimes, there is not enough clearance to use the disconnect tool. You clamp this device around the tube of the fuel filter, and push it up into the fitting on the fuel line. It's purpose is to retract the 4 retaining fingers in the fuel line fitting which are spring loaded radially. These fingers tightly grip a flange on the filter tubing. From my own experience, I had to cut the fuel tubing at the body of the filter with a hacksaw. Then you can see what's going on, and maybe use the disconnect tool. I had to use a plastic sleeve for this purpose that you can buy in a kit at an auto parts store (about $10). Once the retaining fingers are retracted, you can pull the end of the filter tube out of the fuel line fitting. Be prepared to yank, pull, push, swear, curse, and maybe cry and pray. If you're lucky, the rest of the fuel filter tube will come out, you won't break anything, and your marriage will still be intact.

Good luck (remember rated this help).

Fuel filter location

Things to know first: It's about the size of a soup can, has three fuel lines running into it that have quick-disconnect fittings. This means you have to buy a very cheap, plastic tool to disconnect the lines. Tell the parts store you need the quick-disconnect tool that matches your tubing size on the filter: I found an assortment in a package for about $5. Now, jack up the passenger-side of the car. Crawl under below the post that divides passenger front door from back door, and look up. You're looking for a cylinder mounted front-to-back, just inside the edge of the frame. If I remember correctly, you have one tube running into the back (from fuel tank), and two leading out from the front. A one-bolt clamp holds it in place. I found it easier to take the clamp loose work on it. The plastic tool is sort of T-shaped, with the bottom of the T formed by a split tube that connects to a flat disk that is also split. The idea is to hold the tool with the flat disk end toward the filter, and spread the split over the tube: it will slide over the tube end enclose it. You now have a filter at one end, a quick disconnect at the end of your fuel line where it attaches to your filter (metal tubing end of filter), and your tool slipped over the metal tubing between filter and disconnect. Shove the disconnect tool toward the fuel should be possible to force it into the end of the quick disconnect and release it, allowing you to shove the fuel line off. You'll get a bit of gasoline-cologne out of this, but it shouldn't leak much---it's supposed to seal. Now, do the same thing to the remaining two tubes, and your old fuel filter should be completely disconnected. Bolt the new one into the clamp and onto the car....push the three fuel lines back onto the filter, and it's time to crawl back out----you're done. Jack the car back down and grin proudly.

unbolt the filter from the bracket, that is a 5/16" machine screw head size, then remove the nylon clips that hold the lines onto the filter, hold a rag over the fuel line when u remove it, it will have about 30 pounds of pressure.
