NOPE. Sorry, hate to say it but you gotta go and get the release tool to get that fitting to separate. Not to mention its probably charged with coolant.I abandoned my a/c, so I just cut it. Was not charged though. Good luck friend. You can normally get the tool from your local parts store free rental(deposit reqd.).

Oh, and yes. Once you get the housing open, the core is lying in the casing. Good luck with that top screw!LOL!
