    You've probably already gave this a go, but... have you tried wedging a very small screwdriver under the bottom and pushing up, as you simultaneously depress the clips?

    Try squirting some silicone spray around the connectors and let it soak in for a while.

    When you push the tabs in wiggle the connector and it should pull off.

    Is it the S-style connector here: https://www.normagroup.com/norma.nsf/res/Quick%20Connectors%20catalog.pdf/$file/Quick%20Connectors%20catalog.pdf -> S – SAE J2044 QUICK CONNECTORS

    They look like they should be a press and pull. However, the illustration shows two press-retainers - how do the other two release the locking disc on the spigot?

    You've probably already tried this, but does it help if you depress the clips and then try to push the connector further together slightly, to loosen everything, before you try to pull it apart?

    I hadn't forgotten that thread (I started it after all!) and yes I tried that. I think I can get one of them free (rearmost one on the passenger side) but the other three seem stuck pretty solid, there's very little or no give in the push tabs, whether I'm pulling the hose away from or pushing it towards the intercoolers. I have tried pushing the hoses in and out to free them. Half the battle is that access to the lower tabs on the driver's side connectors is very limited because of a PCV hose that runs directly underneath, and also just the angle that they're at.

    Thanks for that PDF Neil, looking at it I think it is the S style connector but they haven't got the green part on them as shown in the photos. Not sure if that's relevant or not.
