ok i removed the retaining clips but unsure how to remove the hose bc it doesnt want to budge. im not wanting to break it since it is plastic. so any suggestion how to go it would be appreciated.

Just reef on it and wiggle... It will come off. The o-ring is now what is holding it on there... It will not break.... The stuff is pretty thick...

Yea the plastic breaks very easy... I broke my upper hose yesterday. It is also around 0 here so the plastic is brittle.
