    My husband went to change the fuel filter on my 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. He tried to get the connectors off but he couldn't. He cut it off. He cut the entire connectors on both sides. Now all there is remaining are the lines.
    How can we replace the connectors to hook up my new fuel pump.
    Please help. I want to be able to drive my truck.

    ^ Four days later and only crickets chirping. Todd Z was kind enough to reply on FB and link the type of kit you need to do this safely.
    https://www.dormanproducts.com/p-28963-800-050.aspx

    For the sake of safety for your husband, you, and others PLEASE find outside assistance BEFORE attempting this repair. High pressure fuel lines leaking is a very serious safety concern. Good luck.

    MEASURE FUEL LINE DIAMETER BEFORE ORDERING.

    Hopefully people will see this and never need to do this repair because the hard fuel lines were cut. OP's original quotes from FB page:

    I wish there were a way to tie the two together. I don't use Facebook.

    ^ Can't blame you. I've had so many security issues with FB, I made an alias and cancelled my other account. IMO, FB is total BS.

    No clue and probably not.... Just create a fake FB account, Use a GMail address and a BS profile pic. Join the groups.... I may have a few back up accounts no one knows about.
