Looked through erWin and some other manuals and they all state to "Press the release buttons" that works fine for the other two lines but the feed has no release button, I suspect it needs some type of VW tool that is not mentioned........anybody knows how this comes apart. TIA

I got it this morning, I guess I was not trying hard enough because of a fear of breaking something and costing more money & time. You need to push that black ring collar into the metal quick connect while at the same time pushing down on the metal quick connect you will feel it release and then you can pull it away and they will separate.

DrPeter thank you for that link, I was not sure how that tool would be used so a quick search brought up this http://www.vwgolf.org/plug_in_connectors-1809.html It seems to be used to support one end of the line to help in removal but appears to not be used on the quick connect itself, but as you can see in the search for that tools usage it also found some types of possible connector types and their release procedure:) I was dealing with Variant 2

Thanks for the details, I have seen the tool before, never really used it. I have used an open end wrench before to push the inner collar/release in to separate the lines before.

I found a tool (37300 Fuel and AC Disconnect Pliers) maybe it can be used to squeeze the lines together, pushing the release in?

I find spraying with a light lube helps a lot too.
And blowing compressed air in and around the connector to remove sand or dirt so the tabs release back more, works well underneath the vehicle like for fuel filters.

.. and cover with a shop rag/towel so you do not have fuel going everywhere. Use gloves, eye protection, etc ...

Yea I donned on the PPE not sure what I was going to encounter and to my surprise zero fuel leakage at that QC fitting, but I did pull the fuse for the Lpfp & module and ran the engine till it quit, but still I was suspecting something.

Yes, you may, however please start a new forum post and we can reply to that thread, include a complete Auto-Scan and lets see what is going on.

Hopefully there is no rags stuck in the engine :p


Thank you,
