950 Removing Fuel Tank

Hey guys I'm having a hell of a time getting the fuel tank off of the 950. I have everything disconnected except the fuel return line that is connected by an orange clamp. Instructions say to open the clip and push the top and bottom tabs to push the connector apart. I don't have huge hands but there isn't any clearance to get the pressure on the tabs like I need. Does anyone have any advice or figured a way around this problem?

Just keep at it. I have large hands and it took me awhile, but it finally just popped loose. I don't remember exactly how, but I do remember that once I got it, it seemed simple. One of the duh moments for me.
