    The front pipe, Push it toward the firewall and squeeze in the sides. Then pull back.

    Back one, Grrr, held in with a little latch against a small notch.
    Push the tab toward the back (toward the firewall) and then toward the engine. It took me heaps of goes to get that one.

    I got the one on the VZ and VE off with out it.
    I don’t think you’d get a quick connect tool in the space to release the connection.

    Might be easier if you unbolt the valve first so you can lift it up enough to get a better grip.

    Push the hose towards the purge body first wile hanging onto it, then squeeze the clips in then should pull out, if you have too use pliers to squeeze, if still wont come then repeat with twisting and wiggling side to side motion it will come.. Try push and pull in a fast motion.

    Do you have a new valve to look at? Should be easy to figure out by looking at a new one

    No. You need to see the end section of the hose to make sense of it.

    I’ll draw a picture tonight when I get home.

    This is a crap diagram. Bottom points to front of car. Top points to windscreen.

    Arrows indicate direction of movement.

    Is it this connector? there is two ribs either side on the clip just push hose in and then push in ribs and then pull back and hose will come off, may take a little bit if its been damaged according to 07GTS.
