Question about Ford Explorer
Most of the time that the disconnects are not working is because of dirt and grime build up. Most of the fuel filters take a line disconnect tool to release the clips. If your filter has plastic clips that you can see at the connection, you should be able to pinch the clips together while moving the line back and forth or twisting back and forth to disconnect the tabs. If this is not working, used compressed air to blow out all the debris from the quick disconnect. Other filter take the fuel line disconnect tools. Dirt and grime give the tools grief in getting the lines disconnected too. Clean the lines before attempting removal and you can save yourself a lot of grief. 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.

there is a tool that you need to do this. it looks like a small barrel on one side. There is tiny fingers on the inside of the connector that this tool pushes back into the fitting. done correctly will come of easy. you can purchase or rent from your local auto parts store

Raise the left rear of the vehicle with a floor jack.
Turn the ignition off and remove the fuel filler cap to relieve any pressure that has built up in the fuel tank from evaporating fuel. This will prevent fuel from spraying and running down your arm when you release the fuel lines.
Use the fuel line quick disconnect tool to remove the lines from the fuel filter by slipping the tool into the quick disconnect until it spreads the retainer and allows the line to be removed. Push the line onto the filter while pushing the tool into the fitting, then pull the line off the filter. When both lines are free, unsnap the filter from the bracket.
Snap the new filter into the bracket, noting the markings that indicate flow. Flow should always be toward the engine. Push the line fittings onto the filter nipples until a click is felt, and the line can no longer be pulled off the filter.
Prime the fuel system by turning the ignition key to the "Run" position for two seconds and then to the "Off" position. Do this three times and then start the engine. Check the filter quick disconnects for leaks then test-drive. 2001 mazda tribute, good-day !
