You would think so...it may be just a clip but in the process of trying to remove this "simple" clip, the fuel line gets cut, a bolt is snapped, bloody stains everywhere, a dent on the rocker panel from trying to get underneath but that head was just too big...so the car has to be jacked up some more but the jackstands was on unstablized ground and it falls to the ground crushing the new fuel regulator which you have to buy another one on top of a new bolt, new fuel lines, paper towels (to clean up the blood) and a ice pack for your head, oh and a new retainer clip for the clip that'* permenantly embedded in the ground.

It could be simple or friggin hard

(thank god mine was replaced under a GM recall...)
Using ring pliers.. remove ring.. wiggle and pull on regulator. Insert new one.. put ring back in. If it takes 5 full minutes you fought it hard.
Or, if you don't have ring pliers, two finishing nails will definitely work.
