I cannot disengage the connectors at the fuel pump. All directions for this refer to the spring locking type and how to slide the tool down the line etc. Mine are not that type. I have the spring lock type on my fuel filter and have used the plastic tool there but fuel pump connectors are different. There is a rubber access port to the side of the connector but what tool is used to loosen these?

Sorry we had to use 2004 fuel line diagrams there must have been a mid year switch. Check out the diagrams below make sure you push the fuel lines together while releasing the connector. This video shows the job being done.

Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

It was leaking fuel from the blue steel braided line that goes from the metal fuel line to the reserve tanks fuel pump. I am currently pregnant so I asked a family member who has worked as a mechanic to take a look at it for me. Horrible idea! He dropped the tank and used a quick disconnect tool on the fuel pump side of the steel braided line however he got the genius idea to take a hacksaw to the side of the line that goes into the steel line then left it. Now I am in a pickle and need to know how to disconnect the remaining side of the line so I can take the entire hose to a place locally and have a new one made.

It y have a quick disconnect as well or a regular screw out type fitting. I am attaching pics of wht the two different ones look like you will need a special tool for both so try to find out what you have. Auto parts should have the tool.
