N54 water thermostat wont come out!

I'm replacing the water pump/thermostat on my 2007 335i. I've got the water pump out, but the "quick" disconnects on the water hoses won't pull away from the thermostat! I've got the spring disengaged form both disconnects, and totally off one. Neither will pull away.


Has anyone ever encountered this? Have they fused together over the last 6ish years?

I really DON'T want to leave that thermostat in there, but I'm about 30 minutes away from saying "fuck it".

I finally got them off. Those connectors suck! I used a large flat blade and twisted.
