Fuel leak!!

I have a problem and in need of some serious help.. I have a 2011 powerstroke that I changed the fuel filter on the other day and my truck started leaking fuel. I had no idea where it was coming from so I looked into it tonight and now the little line that comes off the inlet to the filter won't seat back and it blows off everytime I turn the key over! Can anyone give me some advice to get it fixed? And also any experience with the leak I'm describing?

Sounds like you might have broken the plastic clip that seats to hold the line on. When you shove the line on you should be able to push the green plastic tab down and hear a slight click.

Yeah it's the smaller line that comes off the inlet and goes down.. It came loose from that fitting and I can't seem to get it to go back on and stay..

Is the o-ring down in that line? If so how can I get it out? I can't get it to move
