you can use 5 small screwdrivers and lots of paitence.... but please video it cause i'd love to watch  , some times you can use the transit clips still on the hose from when they were fitted, but Taps is right the plastic tube is so simple! get one.

A piece of pipe cut length ways down the side. Use a small screw driver to move the spring in the fitting back the push the cut pipe over the a/c pipe and into the sprung bit. Then pull appart.
I used some 10 or 15mm copper pipe, you could also used the plastic stuff

Those are the same tools I have and they work a treat both on the granada 24v and the sierra 2.9
