Pull harder

and be prepared to replace the o-ring thats on the pipe your pulling out. btw its $20 at the dealership and it comes with the one that goes on the pressure regulator too.

Doooon't do it.

Just remove the injectors/rail from the LIM and manipulate out of the way. Its alot easier than what everyone else does.

all u need to do in a situation like that is use simple mechanical advantage, in the automotive world its called a BFH...i mean uhh prybar, sorry. i just use a screw driver or any good prying utensil like a long ratchet handle and make sure the fuel rail is bolted down. i have taken my fuel line out more than 5 times and i still have the stock o ring on it, its still in very good shape. if the o ring gives u any trouble let me know and i might be able to get u one at less than $20

probem was solved guys sorry i forgot to post up. i just pulled till it came out, suprisingly the o ring was in one piece afterwards.
