Job 1 external trans filter removal?

I have two job 1 trucks that have the external transmission filters on thiem. The kind with the 4 lines going into them (that also cost $115). Two lines simply unscrew. The other two have some sort of quick-connect fitting, that might do a fine job at quick-connecting, but really suck to disconnect. I haven't found out how well they quick-connect because I haven't figured out how to get the darned things off yet. Any one know what kind of tool you need to get them off? I have tried all the A/C disconnect tools I have, and also fuel filter disconnect tools I have, and no luck.

Or maybe I am missing something entirely. Has anyone accomplished this?

They don't take the same tool as a fuel line or an a/c line. I ended up making my own tool from a piece of copper tubing. I cut two collets from the copper pipe, and shaved them down small enough to slide into the fitting. Then I used my clutch line disconnect/HPOP line disconnect tool to force them into the fitting. Rock the HPOP line disconnect back and forth, and it will force the copper collets into the fitting and release the spring ring.

I'm going to remove mine with a line cutter next time. I'm going with a Suncoast spin-on type filter set up when I re-do my trans. Those Ford ones only filter *part* of the oil that passes through them any way. My trans has suffered for it.

The grey pieces come off by pulling them. Try to do it evenly and be careful with the side closest to the filter housing. THe plastic is thinner. Just bought a new one as the dealer broke mine. Didn't feel like going through the BS of getting it replaced, and just spent the $10 at another place to get it.

In the PDF ending in "210" it states that on the quick connect side, you MAY have to take the the fitting off at the filter housing by unscrewing it... then removing the fitting from the line, if stuck.

The "209" pdf has an image that shows how the grey connectors work.

Grey "latch" - 8C3Z-7Z465-A
Filter - FT176 -or- 7C3Z-7B155-B
