Question about 2001 Volvo V70
I have to replace the fuel pipe from the outlet of the fuel filter to the push on coupling under the rear of the engine. How do I disconnect this front coupling? is a special tool needed?
You will need a sppring lock removal tool. Go to a parts store and ask them for the fuel line removal tool kit. There should be 5-6 pieces and it is not that expensive. The tool itself has a **** in it and a big end and a small end. You slip the tool over the metal line small end towards the lock and just push it in and pull the lines apart.

Tips for a great answer:
Park the vehicle in a safe place and with enough room for you to work
around your Expedition.
Loosen the filler cap, open the hood and remove the accessory cover from
the fuel supply manifold or fuel rail.
Remove the black, negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system
pressure. Locate the Schrader valve right before the first fuel injector on the
fuel rail-the valve is similar to the air valve on a bicycle tire. Using a
small screwdriver, depress the small stem inside the valve. Cover the valve
with a shop rag to catch the squirt of fuel.
Set the transmission to neutral and lift the rear, right-hand side of
the vehicle (passenger side) using a floor jack and support the car safely on a
Locate the fuel filter under the frame rail, near the fuel tank and
clean the lines and fittings on both ends of the fuel filter. This will prevent
fuel system contamination.
Remove the nuts from the support bracket holding the fuel filter using a
wrench or ratchet and socket. Pull the bracket off the filter.
Disconnect the outlet fuel line--the one going towards the engine--using
a spring lock coupling tool, which you can buy at most auto parts stores. Then
disconnect the quick release coupling from the other end of the filter by
pressing the locking tabs; push the fitting against the filter and then pull
the line off the filter.
Connect the outlet and inlet fuel lines to the new filter. Make sure the
arrow on the side of the filter case is pointing towards the engine. Install
the filter on its bracket and secure the bracket to the frame rail.
Lower the vehicle and connect the negative battery cable; tighten the
filler cap, start the engine and check for fuel leaks.
