Response to not FE but Ford, trying to get fuel filter of '03 Sport Trac....

We've done loads of em .
Usually as you have done you Lube the o ring install the little nylon tool in the proper diameter and presto it's released.
I have however found some reluctant brides and have borrowed a helper to force the line back toward the filter
While turning the tool and it usually works by the 2or third try!
Give her a shot but remember rotate the little nylon tool while the line is fully compressed and she should release.
It could be worse you could be trying to get the filter off an older Mopar minivan and break the dumbass plastic line off the fuel pump module ask me how I know!
