Yes, the tool can be purchased from a local auto partrs store (in most stores). There is usually a metal safety clip that needs to be removed. The best thing to do is to spray a little mild penetrating oil near the end of the line. Relieve the fuel presure by disconnecting the inertia switch then running the car until it stalls or find the schrader valve on the fuel rail and relieve the pressure into a shop rag or small cup. Please wear safety glasses since the fuel system may still hold pressure. Turn the line on the filter to free the retaining spring, then push the line torward the filter. Install the tool and push into line. With tool installed, pull the line off of the filter. If there's any reason you can't vote 4 thunmbs up, please ask for more information. Thanks and good luck!

How do you remove the fuel filter on a 1998 ford mustang

That must be the " quick disconnect" fittings. Yes, there is a special tool that slips inside the fitting to release it. I'm pretty sure you can buy that single tool, just for ford fuel fittings, at a reasonable price.

Need a special tool to release the hose fittings from the fuel filter. Without the tool it is not going to come off. You can borrow a fuel line disconnect set from checker auto. The have a nice Powerbuilt brand kit made of billet aluminium. The crappy cast-iron ones that look like scissors or the plastic ones don't work very well. The tool slides inside the fitting and releases it so you can slide it off easily. My 2000 explorer uses the 5/16" tool from the set to remove the line from the fuel filter. Note that some vehicles have a fitting that requires another type of tool that goes around the outside of the fitting and compresses some spring clips so the fitting slides off the filter.

Remove fuel lines from the fuel filter on a 93 f150 ford truck

There is a special tool used to disconnect the lines from the fuel filter. You should be able to get them at any local automotive shop, i.e., Pepboys, Autozone, Chief Auto. It should be relatively cheap to buy this tool.
