Squeeze the buttons on the side of the fitting and pull.

Ah. Sorry for being funny there but the more you tell us the better we can help you.

What part is it? Is it missing or what is wrong with it? Could it possibly be repaired?

The female coupling on Harleys is prone to leaking after reconnecting. HD says there are no serviceable parts inside and wants $55 for the fitting. However the culprit is an oring that can be had in automotive/fuel resistant quality for $0.99 at Advance Autoparts...

Other thoughts:
- Is there a manufacturer name on the fitting that would allow you to trace it and possibly cross-reference it to other bikes (whose dealerships might still stock the item)?

- A trip to a few other MC dealerships with the offending part to see if they have something that works.

- Or give Rylan Vos at thevicshop.com a call. He rebuilds a lot of fuel pumps.

Hope this helps...
