There's a small rectangular button on the connector, at the very end (the open end). Just push it in, and it'll release.

You may be interested in part 1J0201488C. It covers the fuel lines and protects them from rocks.

So with some editing of your stream of conscience post, it appears that you can't disconnect the fuel lines from someplace. Is that correct? If so, maybe you can help us help you by describing what connections are giving you the grief.
