leak at fuel rail coupling

My fuel line is leaking where it attches to the fuel rail. I had it apart a few times recently and I really destroyed the inner steel clip that hold sthe line on the rail. Will getting a new inner clip fix the leak or do I need seals as well? Any place other then dealer to get the clip?

It was not leaking before I took it apart.

You're supposed to replace the o-rings whenever you take it off. Get a new disconnect insert with the o-rings and spacer. NAPA maybe, might have to get the kit from the dealer.
