amc49 The inner ring WILL come out, but sometimes they break doing it. Also, if anyone has pulled on pipe or tube first, then the teeth lock in to the pipe/tube and will not release easily. Even vibration can make the teeth settle in deeper into pipe. If you treat them gentle they come right out. I used to use fittings like that on printing press gluer/silicone/softener units and 50 at a time. We yanked lines left and right for job changeups.

AllCarFan I first used a white plastic AC/fuel line removal thinking the red clip needed to be pushed down...didnt work. Thats whey I pulled it up and it popped out.

Looks like one person says push, the other says pull.

Regardless, its out.

amc49 You guys are crazy............Push IN on the clip and the hose releases instantly, it's a quick release fitting. No need even to take it apart. When on assembly line the assembly tech simply pushes hose in and it locks. There are small teeth inside that grab hose, pushing ring in releases them.

You can find same type fitting at Home Depot in plumping department but Ford in its' infinite wisdom has made sure to use bastard one off size so not easily replaceable.

AllCarFan As long as you dont damage the oring, its fine. I have to tap it into the new fitting with the oring with a deadblow hammer.

Buickboy hmm maybe some combo of clip and pulling. maybe pop the clip before pulling up? anyway too little too late now lol. hopefully someone will search and find this in the future

I pulled the clip up with a came up about quarter inch. Then I pulled the line out and it wouldnt come out all the way...thats when I had to yank.

As for the intake getting hot....I am not concerned about that. The incoming air heated up in the stock intake and heats up even more when it enters the head. Thanks for the heads up though.
