I am struggling here...

I have a 2007; it has those release clips on the hose. The shop manual says:

Push the connector fitting into the cooler line. Press the yellow release button. Pull the connector fitting off the cooler line.

The clip is blue, and there is no yellow release button. It looks like I push the connector in and then press the blue tabs, then pull the connector off the cooler.

I push the connector in as far as I can (dont know if its far enough, but I cant budge it any farther), then press those tabs and pull but nothing.

Anyone have any tips? Its driving me nuts! What happened to good ol hose clamps?
