You need the right size disconnect tool. Mine came right off when i did the prepump/tank mods. Its not that bad, but sometimes if you spray the connector with some WD40 or something similiar it help out a good bit.

Hope this helps.

I got the tool figured out the disconnect on the outbound side of the pump, but the tool wont fit inbetween the pump and the hose on the inbound side. Am i trying to disconnect at the wrong spot?

is the tool too big to fit in the spot to disconnect? MIne was, had to modify tool to fit. Mine was plastic so I just cut some of the tool to shorten it so it would fit.
