Remove banjo bolts

I am trying to tear everything out to get to my manifold today, and I am stuck on the oil and fuel filter housing. I can't budge the banjo bolts out, w/o twisting the fuel lines. What am I doing wrong here? Any help is greatly appreciated, as I am at a stand still right now wracking my brain how to do this.

Am I supposed to twist the banjo and fuel line nut seperate directions? Does it pop out? I am lost. I have already slightly twisted the front line where it is most likely going to have to be replaced, and trying to avoid jacking the others up.

I dont know, I replaced my and they came right out.
Could try releasing the fuel line from the fuel bowl so you not twisting it while turning the bolt.

I wish mine were that easy. As I turn the fuel lines are turning, no if's and's or but's. This is where I hit my limitations, and at a complete stand still and losing day light. Sounds like it is beer thirty(might make me think outside the box)

Probably a simple fix here I am missing.

X2, am getting ready to do this and don't want to hit a speedbump. While thinking about separating the line at the fuel filter, the hard line didn't seem like they wanted to come off...

Mine weren't that difficult either. But if you have issues loop a towel around the bolt and then hit the bolt with a little PB blaster. I don't know that it would hurt anything and might make breaking them loose a little easier....

Just a thought

I took both lines loose from the fuel bowl first. no twisting at all. is there a way to wedge a screwdriver in so the fuel line cannot twist with the bolt? as it twists put the screwdriver, or other device, in it's path so it can't move anymore. worth a shot?

You don't have to take the Banjo bolts out to take the manifold off. Just take them off the filter can and remove the oil and filter cans.
