Are you kidding me?!? That's not a reply! Can you please provide some actual detail as I think I'm entitled to a little better than that for $40!
Volvo Mechanic: Joe Barfield, Master High-Tech replied 2 years ago

ok , you just pick out the correct size for your line & push & turn the tool until the line clip releases the line pull it out... its easy

Except for the fact there is only about a 3mm gap between the bottom of the boot on the fuel line and the top of the pump housing, not really room to get the tool in there...
Volvo Mechanic: Joe Barfield, Master High-Tech replied 2 years ago

when you see the tool set you will understand...about$20.00 tool is very small round like the line

Alright, this has been very little help I'm afraid. That tool in Australia will cost a lot more than that, and will take me another week or more to obtain. Oh well
Volvo Mechanic: Joe Barfield, Master High-Tech replied 2 years ago

that tool set works on all cars trucks...eve on A.C. lines

OK, can you provide an image (link perhaps) of the correct type, as there are numerous qr tools there, depending on the fitting
Volvo Mechanic: Joe Barfield, Master High-Tech replied 2 years ago

The fittings should be black, with a cutout on each side with a tab that you press. What works best is if you push the fitting ON to the pump harder to release any tension in the clips, and then squeeze the tabs on each side. Sometimes it is hard to squeeze them appropriately, and I use a pliers that are as wide as the tab so they can squeeze it below the level of the surrounding cutout. Then pull the fitting off.

Squeezing the tabs causes the plastic circle inside the fitting to expand on the two sides between the tabs and release from the ring on the fuel pump line/fitting.
