Finding the right o-rings was a pain for me, I must have wasted 20.00 total for shipping of o rings from different places that were supposed to fit.
There are two of them, and they are a pain/next to impossible to get back in, at least the inner most one is, removing them is not too bad if you have a set of picks though.
I ended up just getting some proper psi rated fuel injection hose, and cutting my nylon fuel line back where it turns to hard metal line, put some hose clamps on it there, and at the fuel rail I removed the quick connect, and slipped the fuel injection hose down over the rail, and tightened the clamps, I made sure to keep the hose running the same path the original line ran, so it won't come in contact with any high heat areas.
I'd have been able to use the Dorman Quick connect fuel line repair tool to repair the line, but I learned that since that line that leaks on most 3800'* is the rear curved line, the dorman tool won't let you compress a new fitting on there even if you owned the tool that compresses the fittings on, so you'd have to cut the line back behind the curve, and then you most likely will not have enough line left to use the quick connect fitting that Dorman sells with the o-rings already installed.
If you take it to a dealer they are going to replace the whole nylon line, which really the best way to have it done, but they are pricey, they will not replace the o-rings for you, at least my dealership would said they could not do so, they said you have to replace the whole line..
I am sure I still have my o-rings that I never used, and I'd offer to send them to you, but to be honest I have a feeling once you get them out, you'll have trouble getting the new ones in as I did, and then you will have to figure out a fix, as without the o rings the line will squirt fuel all over and start a fire in no time.
Get that fixed ASAP though, because it can go bad, just like in a video I share a lot, let me find it for you..
A bad fuel pressure regulator is mainly to blame, but I believe a leaky fuel line helped cause this, of course after that explosion they'd never be able to find out, lol
