I have the caliper off the brake housing, but I cannot remove the caliper from the parking/emergency brake line. How do I remove the caliper from parking brake line? What tool/tools will I need? Thanks!

I am assuming the calipers are already off so you will have to see if you can release the adjusters I have pointed out in pic to pull rotor off. Then you can get to shoes. The caliper is held by two bolts going through from the back. Also the caliper bracket wil need to come off.

I guess I should have worded this differently. I'm having trouble getting the parking brake line off from the caliper. I have everything else off, but the line that runs to the caliper/spring. What tool(s) do I need to release(?) Or to get it off? Thanks.
