Supercharger Help!!! Fuel Line removal

I am installing a supercharger onto my car and it called for me to removed the fuel hose on the passenger fuel rail and I haven't been able to get it released and have skipped it but now it's time for the removal of the fuel rail so I have to get the hose off and I don't really wanna have to cut it and try to replace it. Has anypne used this tool (in the picture, silver) and have any tricks for it or any tricks to get it without the tool or cutting the hose? Thanks in advance

You need to push the tool in very firmly to release the spring that secures the quick release fitting in place. It may help to jiggle the fuel line while pushing the tool.
Keep at it. You'll get it to release.

That tool might not be the right size. Its not for the lines on my 2000 which will be the same as the OP's. I got this.

Works like a charm. You gotta push in really firm.

Also DO NOT CUT THE LINE!

You also can just remove the entire fuel rail and injectors and just move it off to the side. Don't even have to disconnect.

You're going to be changing out your injectors anyway for the blower so you might as well just remove the rails and leave the line connected.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
