Question about Chevrolet Malibu
There is an old trick using a bic pen top to release the lock on the connector. Take a Bic pen top . Cut the top about halfway. Then slit it on the side to open it up. Bend the pointed pocket point up to use as a lever. Take the top and clip it around the pipe of the filter then push altered pen cap toward the connector. It should slide under just enough to release the lock. Good luck! I had a camaro where the filter was right near the rocker panel

you can release the pressure by a presure nozzle on the top of the motor, mine is on the passenger side of the motor has a black cap and looks like a valve stim for a tire kinda. any how take the cap off and you can use a tire pressure chuck to release the pressure

The fuel filter is under pressure so be sure to remove the gas cap before attempting to remove the filter. If not you will strip out the nuts. Run your vehicle until the reserve fuel light has been on for 20 or so miles. This way you can let the remaining fuel (1-2 gallons) run into a gas can and you can reuse it. Unscrew the nuts from the gas tank side and the engine side, then install the new filter. The fuel filter is located on the passenger side, almost directly under the front seat, but on the undercarriage. Hope this helps.

Here is a quick solution. Go to Napa Auto Parts with your line size. Take the piece you broke off so they can match the line size. They sell pieces that are about 18 inches long so you can splice it in. These pieces range in price from about 16 to 22 dollars. Other parts stores don't carry this fuel line. They will want to sell you the whole line at a cost of hundreds of dollars. Napa will be able to accomodate your request as I know because I get these pieces from them often.
Good luck. Let me know how it goes. Just read the directions on the package. You need to heat the line up to in stall.
