Pull the black plastic "ring" back, remove the little metal clip that's in the fitting, and it will pull right out

Cut the rubber part of the line, remove the clip that holds them just in front of the oil pan, the clip is held on w/10mm, but you wont need it so break it and remove the remaing clip base later. Sounds crude but...get er done!

Should be no cutting necessary. Remove the black rubber cap on the line(s) going into the cooler, then with a small flathead pocket screwdriver pry off the metal retainer ring. Be careful and have your other hand there otherwise those things can fly off and be lost.
