Just get a small flathead screw driver and pry it towards you. Just be careful with it that you don't break it

Just a suggestion. I don't know how much water you have in your tank, but I would suggest buying a bottle of Heat fuel additive. You could add 1/2 bottle to the tank. It will absorb the water in your Kaws fuel system. I would add some regardless if you drain the tank or not, to make sure you get all the water out of your fuel system. Don't be confused with the alcohol in gasohol and this additive they are different. One is ethanol, the other is isopropyl alcohol.

As mentioned the red clip slides away from the connectors but doesn't come off.

+1 on Heet added to get the water out. Seafoam will also stabilize the fuel of water but not as well as heet. Drain it, but use the heet afterwards to make sure your fuel system and residual water in your fuel tank is dry.
