Fuel Problem!

I have an 2005 Mustang gt
was having a lag in my acceleration after playing around we figured the cheapest place to start was on the fuel filter... Well a bud of mine tried pulling the clips out only to hear a "pop" after reading some how to sights i found that i had the quick disconnect type of plug in... so now i'm stuck trying to find a green retainer clip... only problem is no one has ever heard of it or so they say... dealer says only way to get that clip is to buy a whole new line... which i find hard to believe that i have to buy a 200 dollar line from the filter to the gas take just for a oval ring? i hope ya'll have some ideas...
thanks for reading
Daniel

Re: Fuel Problem!

its on the line coming from the tank... its in the connector that the filter plugs in to... that ring is what holds the to together... kinda like the v clips did for the older mustangs...

It'd be best to just get it from a wrecking/ salvage yard.
