Default How to disconnect transmission cooler lines from radiator

Replacing the radiator on myy 96 A4 auto tranny. I think everything should be smooth going, except for the tranny cooler lines. They are stuck in place. I took out the bolts, and tried to pull/wiggle/tug at them, and they won't even budge at all.

Is there a trick to getting them out?

Thanks.

I have a 97 A4 with 2.8 AFC engine (auto). The trans. oil cooling lines attach to the radiator with one bolt for with line. There is a o-ring on the tube that needs to be replaced so have them ready to replace. They should just pull out unless yours is different from mine. Wiggle it a little bit to see if they will release it.

Thanks. The top line was stuck, I had to pry it (VERY carefully) using a screw driver. The bottom one was really easy.
