Transmission Oil Cooling Lines

Hey folks,
So my transmission oil cooling lines are soaking wet. So I figured Id replace them. Found both lines for $40 at 1AAuto with free shipping - not a bad price! And they came in next day - Super deal!

Issue though. I did a lot of research and I keep reading that the 96 - 98 models are supposed to have plastic clips that you can squeeze and release the hoses. As I get under the Jeep and start cleaning all the dirt and grime off, I notice that neither of my hoses have the clips.

So the question is, does anyone know how to take them off? / Is it even worth replacing? Frankly...I think I am getting tired of constantly replacing parts, starting to think it's not even worth it anymore, and if you know me, that is huge coming from me because I love my Jeep.

Thanks.

You use a transmission line disconnect tool like below. They also make plastic round ones in kits and both of these tools are available at most auto parts stores. Same tool used for quick-disconnects on fuel and AC lines (larger dia tool for AC).

Alternately, you can replace the metal lines with rubber transmission hose. It was suggested to me a while back when I got stranded in mine. My return line is partially hose now

Though if you can afford the actual lines that's great.

No plastic clips on my 98, never had a leak either in 15 years of driving.
