Q: Replacing fuel pressure regulator

asked by on

So my fuel pressure regulator needed to be replaced so I bought a new one and tried to do it myself. And I take out all of the o rings and screens from the old one. And try to put in the new one. And I try for a few minutes but the new one will just not want to seat all the way so I try to take it out and I wasn't thinking and I pull the regulator and the screen stays in and when I take the screen off the small o ring is gone and must have fallen into the fuel rail. So is it difficult to remove the fuel rail??

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
