2011 570 Fuel Line quick connect fitting

Hi guys,
The fuel line quick connect fitting on my Berg, has the release button/lever facing inwards.
This makes it very difficult for me to get at. Especially with the Cam adjuster in the way.
Maybe I am just being ham fisted, but I really need two hands two clip it back together, and there is really only room for one hand.
How do you clip it back together??

I can get it eventually, but it is more difficult than it should be.
Actually easier to remove the fuel line from the tank itself.

Cheers
Pete

I find it really helps if you connect it prior to dropping the tank all the way back in place. If you follow the order in the manual there is no room. But if you connect it a little earlier in the process it is much, much easier.

Like he said but also, if you push the release all the way in before you put it back together, it will lock in the "in" position so then all you have to do is push it back together and it will click.

Cool! I did not know that. That is an excellent tip!
