Does anyone know how to remove this connector (green arrow) without damaging it? I'm swapping the canister out next week and want to make sure I don't break anything in the process.

There are two hoses on the canister with that style of fastener. Look closely at the end of the hose coupler nearest the canister tube, and on one side you will see the end of a horseshoe shaped retainer clip. Use a flat blade screwdriver to gently move the clip away from the coupler. If the coupler is dirty, you can clean it first or spray a lttle amount of lubricant on it. Do not remove the retainer; just move it enough to clear the cannister tube. When you reinstall the cannister and the hose, just push the retainer clip back down. Remember to also check the under-hood rubber hose connections from the cannister.

Thanks for the tips. Haven't seen that type of fastener before and wanted to make sure not to screw anything up.
