Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
I did that last night. The plastic tools didn't work for me. Cut the filter off as close to the body as you can(dont make any sparks), then you can move the fuel line to a point that you can see what you are doing. If you look inside the connector with a light,you will see little tabs that are supposed to hold the filter in place. Just work at it with a tiny screwdriver and a vicegrip and the remnants of the filter will eventually fall out under the weight of the vice grip. you'll get mad. I tried to buy another tool first but they gave me the wrong thing

I changed a lot of filter on the ford explorer models, and if they are similar, there is a tool needed to "open" up the metal tangs to allow removal. They make them in plastic, that are cheap, or metal plier style.
We had an issue or rust and corrosion getting in the connection area.
What we did was spray penetrating fluid in the connection as you work the tool in and push the line in and out of eachother. This take a while to get the junk out, so be patient. Hope this may help
