1.Recover the refrigerant system (Refer to 24 - Heating and Air Conditioning/Plumbing - Standard Procedure) .2.Remove the secondary retaining clip from the spring-lock type refrigerant line coupler.3.Fit the proper size A/C Line Disconnect Tool 7193 or equivalent over the coupler cage (1).4.Close the two halves of the A/C Line Disconnect Tool 7193 or equivalent around the coupler (2).

NOTE: The garter spring may not release if the A/C Line Disconnect Tool 7193 is not squarely inserted into the coupler cage opening. 5.Push the A/C Line Disconnect Tool 7193 or equivalent into the open side of the coupler cage to expand the garter spring (3). Once the garter spring is expanded, pull on the refrigerant line attached to the female half of the coupler until the flange on the female fitting is separated from the garter spring and cage on the male fitting.6.Open and remove the A/C Line Disconnect Tool 7193 or equivalent from the refrigerant line coupler (4).

You can get a set of line tools from Advance or Autozone for about $8. Not as nice as what Remerson uses, but they do the job.

Yeah, for something that's not used everyday, those will work just fine.

Make sure you have your refrigerant recovered first . Slide the tool into the open side of the coupling to expand the spring . While doing that pull the lines apart .
