Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier
I am trying to replace a fuel filter on a 2004 chev cavalier. I am having trouble disconnecting the quick connect to do this.
You can use two small flathead screwdrivers. What you need to do first is the unclip the connection. Once you unclip it, you need to push in on the smaller side of the clip with a regular flat head screwdriver. When you push it in, you also have to try to push the hinged side clip in as well. The hinged side clip needs to be straightened out so the you can pull the filter pipe out. I found the easiest way to do this is to line the two opening up, and while I'm pushing on the smaller side of the clip, stick a small screwdriver on the backside and pry it out. It is a pain to do it without the special tool, it took me about 10-15 minutes to make pry the green "ring" off so that I could pull out the line.

There is a tool that you need to do this. it looks like a small barrel on one side. There is tiny fingers on the inside of the connector that this tool pushes back into the fitting. done correctly will come of easy. you can purchase or rent from your local auto parts store
