Default Leaking at fuel filter

So lately I hhave noticed a gasoline smell when the truck is parked so today I got under the truck and saw a drip at where the fuel line from the tank goes into the fuel filter , at 240 k miles I guess the connector has gone bad. There is a short section of fuel line about 24" or so there that has the fuel filter connector on one end and another quick connect on the other end. I have been trying all night to locate one of those but when I do a search its as if the 2005 f150 fuel lines dont even exist. Why cant I find this part?

I looked on Autozone real quick and saw a bunch of replacement connectors for your fuel line. Just cut the line where the leak is, fit a replacement line at length and attach your new connector. Replace fuel filter. Should cost you less than $40 and a couple hours time.

The fuel connector at the filter broke on mine as well... Just threw a zip ties around it and it's been fine for 10k miles... lol

I broke mine the first time replacing the filter. Picked up a pack of pink connectors at my local NAPA and after some scraping out of the old blue connector, it snapped in as easy as LEGO.

NAPA part number for reference: NOE 7306753
