Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

A couple different types of quick connects may be used depending on location. You may just need to press or pull a retainer or you may need a release tool.

At what location are you disconnecting the line?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
disconnecting at tank to replace fuel pump.

That should have simple plastic quick connects but there may be dirt packed in them preventing them from moving easily. Are you able to upload a picture?

It won't pry out, it will need to be squeezed to be released. Are you able to upload a picture?
