Fuel Filter stuck

I am trying to change the fuel filter on my buddies 94 F-250, its the big 460. The filter is located right in the frame rail just like my broncos. I have the tool for removal but the line will still not disconnect from the filter, the tool will only slide about half way in. Any suggestions?

push harder it will go or should. spray wd40 in there then use air. sometimes dirt will get packed in there and make it hard for the tool to work.

Might not be using correct size, try a different size of disconnect. Or just push harder

Remember they are saying "push" the lines harder against the fuel filter, then apply the tool. When properly seated, then pull on the lines.
