Did it have a nut originally? if you pulled the clip you shouldn't have any problem.

There are several different tool designs available for this job from a variety of sources but they all do the same basic thing. The tool slides under the lip of the outer fitting and releases the spring loaded retainer so the inner fitting can be pulled out. Try Sears, Harbor Freight or any auto parts store for the tools. They usually come in a set of a few sizes for about $8~20.
