So I took a shot at it yesterday, not the best idea it was almost 5:30, and it needed up getting dark on me. The job looks fairly simple and straight forward and would probably take a hours of so.

Heres the problem though, my cooler lines have that, I think its a snap connector, I cant get the thing off. I checked the link in the how to, but they all seem to say push it forward, then push in on the sides and pull out. Mine doesn't seem to be able to push forward. Especially the one on the tranny side, because its right up against the fitting its connected to.

I have 2 connectors, they look about the same, except ones has black tabs and the other has blue ones. They look like it should be easy, push the tabs and pull, but its doesn't even seem like I can push the tabs all that much.

I just want to be really careful with it because if I break that thing I'm stuck. Ill be walking to the Ford dealer lol.
