ok... so It only took me 20 seconds to get the quick disconnect to come loose... Im having a hell of a time getting the bolt side to come lose. Spent about two hours trying... having only an inch of two to turn the wrench is a problem. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to make more space??? its in between the tank and some black box thing that has a hose going to it. any help?;crap

Spray it with some pb blaster and let it sit. It will come eventually.

Hopefully you are using a line wrench....correct?

I was just using two regular wrenchs... oops?

will a line wrench be easier to fit up in that small space?

A line wrench helps you not round off the nut thats on the fuel line.....which could cause you to kink the line

You'll also have more controlled leverage with a line wrench because it wraps around the nut almost like a box wrench with less risk of rounding off compared to using open ended wrenches.

If you work on cars then having a set of line wrenches in your tool box is worth the small investment to help you avoid making costly mistakes using the wrong tool for the job.

i did this last weekend. 2 crescent wrenches. 5 minutes. maybe things are different on the '99 ?

the bolted side should be the same... mine is just rusty and seized up :-(
