I wish there was an easy way to do it, but there isn't. Take care when removing the old hose, it's best to carefully cut it and peel it off rather than tug it off. Be careful not to scratch the tank fitting or the hard fuel line when cutting that old hose.

Cutting the hose off with a razor is the best way. The nipples are VERY fragile and will bend/break off quite easily.

I've found it easier sometimes to put the car in the air, remove the under-tray and attack them from the bottom.
