See the small surround around the line at the slave? Push it in, while pulling the clutch line out of the slave. It work the same as a quick air connect fitting where you push down around the outside of the line (the ring) then pull the line out. Same thing.

i had this exact problem when i dropped my tranny. i hated that little coupling, i bought the special tool when i put it back in, but i took it out by jamming 2 flathead screwdrivers into it and reefed on it till she let go. its not a fun job either way but the tool does help, i got it at lordco, they wanted like 30 bucks for it and all it is is a flat peice of metal that looks like a dinner fork with only to teeth but far apart.
hope that helps
