Hard to tell from the picture, but I don't think the Astro 7892 tool set will work. From the description is sounds like it's intended for domestics. If you haven't already reviewed it, Starless's DIY in the Wiki has some good pictures of the Assenmacher tool in use to see what you're up against.

I have the Assenmacher widget - it's great and a breeze to use. However, if you're planning on replacing the lines, anyway, who cares if you goon the ends up during removal? I seem to recall a thread or two either here or on Fanatics, where folks have used alternate methods (clamps, screwdrivers?) to move the locking tabs. Difficulty factor is that you have to lean in over the fender to struggle with the connectors.
