There's a circular spring in a groove at the bottom of the bell shaped section, you can buy a removal tool, but is do-able with 2 half pieces of tube (with id to match the od of your fuel pipe) slid between the pipe and the spring to allow the spigot of the pipe to pass the spring.
It will probably need to be quite short to bypass the bump on the pipe below the connector, the proper tool has a chamfer on the back face to get around this.

If you know a Nissan mechanic they may have access to the tool. As indeed may other working auto mechanics.

The Audi mechanic living opposite me is very handy for VAG related tools, parts and working knowledge.


Out of curiosity is it a repair or service you're doing or kit car related?

It surprises me that you can pot pics here but you don´t know how to disconnect a fuel line...



Look for fuel line disconnect tool.
As stated above, you can do a makeshift one, but there are cheap ones that work ok...





Beware of what you wish.. for it may come true....

Thanks for the replies. What does the tool look like? A quick look on ebay shows up plastic clips, it it possible that the grey plastic cover is in fact the removal tool?

Laser TOOLS LAS6822 Fuel Line Disconnect Tool

If you stick the laser part number into any search engine..

I’ve done them with a bit of copper pipe on a Sunday afternoon and no shops open but it i# very fiddly.

The plastic tool is ok when the pipe is plain sided, i'm not sure if it will work around the bump in the pipe, but it's cheap enough for a punt.

There's alloy tools that come in a set that are a touch better, or a proper oe type tool can be had from the snap on man or ebay if you can wait for the post from the us.
