Re: gas filter?
That's right. DO NOT go trying to pry it off. All you will do is damage the o rings inside the hose connectors at either end, costing way more than any number of do it yourself filter replacements run.
The "tool" is a stupid little plastic round piece with a slit in it. The slit gets it onto the fuel line right in front of the filter after you have pulled the clip retainer off. Slide the little plastic guy down the line, right into where it connects with the filter, and then pull the line/filter apart (it is pressurized, so be careful, gas will leak out).
Once you have the tool, it is so simple it can be done in 10 minutes. And yes, that stupid plastic tool is a must.
