Hello Ian and thank you for your question,There should be two bolts that hold the expansion valve to the evaporator tube tapping plate which have to be removed in order for the valve to come off. See step 13 in the link below. Have a close look at the valve and you should be able to see them. Once there removed the valve should come off.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Expansion%20valve%20JUl%2029.pdf
Oh, let me me take a look at the rear for you. I was assuming you where working on the front. Hold on a second, be right back.
Have a look at these steps for the rear valve .https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Rear%20Expamsion%20valve%20Jul%2029.pdfhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/rear%20valve%20JUl%2029.pdfhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Rear%20Install%20JUl%2029.pdf
The lines should come off , have you tried gently tapping on them to see if they will release. If there just stuck that should help get them loose.
