So I decide to do some preventive maintanence and change the fuel filter. I don't have the tool, but who needs it? Right? So I take screwdriver and try and pry it out. Well, long story short, I got the fuel filter off, but the metal neck is stuck inside the braided line. Can't get it out for the life of me. AND THE FUEL LINE IS DISCONTINUED! Looks like I'm in for some junkyard shopping.

What's my best bet here? Any other suggestions for getting me out of this jam?

if you shove the tool in and pull on the neck with some needle nose you should be able to get it out.

What is this "tool" you're talking about? Is there a special "tool" for fuel filter removal?:2huh:
Yes.:)

The tool is a general fuel line remover. Any auto parts store should carry one.
