Trying to remove it from the barbed fitting. I don't want to pull it, but pushing it seems to be a lost cause.

Anyone have any tips/tricks?

I found it helped to twist back and forth while pushing in a bit to loosen the tension. However, I still found the barbed fitting a bit of a pain, so I replaced it with a push to fit connector (8mm Outside Diam, 1/8 BSPT, Push-to-Connect Male Elbow).

For anyone else wondering, I heated it with a hairdryer for a couple of seconds...this softened it enough that it pushed off relatively easily!

Will look into the quick disconnect solution!
