Hose Clamp Removal Tools for Coyote

I have finally started the disconnection of the electrical connectors and hoses on my donor Mustang GT. I want to remove the water hoses at the front of the engine. I can reach and release the hose clamp on the upper side, but cannot get to the underside easily. I see a lot of connections that use these plastic interlocking fittings. Anyone identify the proper clamp release tools to release these connectors? I do not want to damage them by improperly trying to remove them. Getting to the fittings on the front of the engine is bad enough, but no way to get to the connectors on the firewall until the engine is out.

Thanks,

Alan

OK, can you provide a link to what it is you are describing?

BTW, after some effort, I found a way to release the fittings on the water hose connections to the front of the engine. So one problem solved, but I am sure I will run into others.

Are these what you mean? Just slide it sideways to remove it.

If it is like this you can normally squeeze and pull it off. If you are not having any luck with that way you can try a fuel line tool
