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?

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.

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