Helll all, not sure if I am doing something wrong, but I have followed steps to release pressure in lines. I have removed all bolts as stated in instructions. However once all disconnected, I still cannot pull the fuel line off? I'm stuck now, as I wanted to test my injectors. 2014 kia soul! 175,000 mi.

A metal safety clip connects the injector to the fuel rail so the fuel rail and injectors come out together. I wouldn't try to remove the fuel rail separately, by removing the metal clips, because the injectors are snug. Use a screwdriver or pry bar and work your way along the fuel rail evenly. The service manual states you should replace the metal clips when servicing the injectors but I didn't. The manual also says you should replace the high pressure metal pipe that connects the high pressure fuel pump to the fuel rail but I didn't and I don't have any leaks. I just rebuilt the 2.0 engine in my soul after connecting rod failure. If you are going to clean/replace the injectors you need a special tool to compress the Teflon ring that is near the tip of the injector. Some of the injector tools are expensive so I made due with what I had. I damaged two Teflon rings in the process so have extras. One injector kit is $10 at the dealership.
