That fuel filter sounds cheap at $22.68, and for two the math aint right either.
However, I can help you undread the plastic quick release, quickly.
1. Lift your tank and disconnect the 2 electrical connectors for pump and fuel guage.
2. Turn on ignition and push "Start" button. (This releases the fuel pressure within the line)
3. Push line towards connector, while pulling back on white collar.
