    98 sunefire fuel line

    I'm replacing- front to back- the nasty job of rusty fuel lines on a 98 sunfire. How do you disconnect the quick disconnects on both ends of the line?

    not 100% sure but
    i think its easyer if you get the tool for it.
    it just goes over the live you push on the tool and pull on the line and it should come off
    but not 100%
    hope this helps

    Some have the built-in disconnector;


    Others require the tool illustrated above. Ignore the fact that they're braided, but the connectors are standard.



    If you snap a picture of your disconnect, Rudy, I can be 100% of what tool is needed.

    Thanks- I borrowed the tool and took off entire fuel/brake rail for replacement. Filter- I was not so lucky with BUT it came off whether it wanted to or not. Not a fun repair no matter how you look at it. I cant wait to try to fit the new rail front to back with sunfire sitting on ramps.
