Refer back to the parts diagram you posted; I believe you'll need the tie shown there. Mine unhooked itself with ease, but I couldn't tell you exactly how since I did the work over a year ago.

Mine did not seat against the pump either. Using a flare nut wrench, I hand tightened it just enough to the compress the little O-ring on the end of the fitting. If you overtighten the fitting, you risk cutting or overcompressing the O-ring.
