ther is a special tool u need disconnect them they sell them at auto zone its two half circle that clamp around the line and u push the tool up into the fitting which realeses it. i have been there and for me it was a pain in the butt, and there was nothing quick about it. I'm sure if you were a tech and used them every day they would be quick but for the driveway mechanic they suck.

o and one more thing dont destroy those metal clips like i might have because one day you'll be driving down the road wondering why you smell diesel fuel, and why your fuel gauge is dropping adnormibly fast.
