Push the fuel lines on while trying to use the disconnect tool. There's little "fingers" inside the line that the disconnect tool collapses so you can get the line off.

Also spray some lube where the tool goes in.

Another thing you might try is spring for the nicer of the disconnect tools. I had the same problem replacing my fuel filter when I returned the junkie scissor style and spent the extra $10 on the oem brand. There is 3 different tools in 1 package but they come together properly with no slop and that made the difference for me.

2nd that i bought the crap 4 in one disconnect and snapped on me I had to go back and get the other one that was 10 times better for the job. fair waning people use plyers sometimes to rip the fuel filter off the previous owner just used half of the retainer clip back on and I had to use a small flat head and twist the hell out of the line don't get mad at it remember any metal fragments are going into the engine after the fuel filter

Make sure the retainer ring is properly set, as in the fingers are pryed inward enough to grab the fuel line before you put the line on, or go and get new ones.
