Because the locking tab that you CAN see is not the only one holding the fitting on.... there's a sandwiched tab on the underside of the fitting as well. I can not seem to get both of them to pinch down enough to release the injectorCan't seem to get those unclipped either
I saw that method, too, but it didn't make any difference for me. Tabs on my clips are green fwiw.Push the fitting toward the injector , pinch the black tabs then gently pull away from the injector.
I managed to finally get both hoses unclipped from the rails, and the fuel pump removed, still connected to the fuel line, no breaks in the high pressure side.You shouldn't have to disconnect from injector side. Just unhook hose from fuel pump. Cut the oetiker clamp and use a small hose clamp when putting it back together.
