Why you need this master line disconnect set

A master line disconnect set allows you to work on AC, fuel, heater, transmission, and oil lines

All late model vehicles use some kind of snap-together line connectors on their AC, fuel, transmission and oil lines. It’s not impossible to disconnect them without this master line disconnect set, but it’s certainly much harder without the right tools. Worse than taking a lot more time, using picks to dislodge the locks on these connectors can damage them. Then you’re in a whole world of hurt.

How to use line disconnect tools

For garter spring connector, simply open the tool, slide it onto the line and push it into the connector. The tool will push the garter spring out of the way, allowing you to pull the line out of the connector.

For quick detach connectors, slide the tool onto the line and push it into the plastic tab locks to disengage them from the line. Then pull the line out of the connect.

Other lines may require you to insert the tools and rotate to release the locking tabs.

Rick’s take on this tool kit

OrionMotorTech provided this kit for me to try. I used in on a fuel line and it worked perfectly. I’ve have an old set of line disconnect tools and these are every bit as good as the set I bought off the tool trucks years ago.

Find the tool set on Amazon for $30

Tool trucks sell this kit for almost $60, but you can get yours for $30 on Amazon
