Ae you using a small thin blade screwdriver underneath the top of the clip to pry up?

Only if you want to break the clip! Most parts stores sell the fuel line disconnect tool for a reasonable price. I recommend washing all dirt out of the connection, use the tool to disconnect, lubricate the new filter nipples with engine oil and reassemble. Do it right or do it twice.
