IMHO If you pull them I would replace them. I realize they are expensive for small rubber hose. But they can be brittle and just break no matter what. That tools looks cool but I would think it might not work on the passenger side. The engine is pretty close to the body there. Along with that heat shield I hate so much. I can't see you getting to those lines with out removing it. I have done business with this company before. I have their injector tester. I over haul my own injectors and use their shim kits to set pop pressure. They have good customer service.

Years ago, i bought the "clampless hose" kit from epay. They never came off but fell apart when i slightly pulled on them 4 years later.

Ok.
I will try that tool. If I manage to get some room and the little clamps don't get in the way for the hose grabbing, maybe I can save a hose or two.
Or not.
Thanks

Following up.
I had to remove the alternator and the air horn to get the space i was looking for.
The plier proof to be too long and I couldn't get the angle necessary for a good grab on the hose. The little clamp and the recess on the injector also didn't like the tool. If was not for the clamp, it could work better. For a clampless hose, is a go.
