Help on replacing coolant Expansion tank

I just had my coolant tank develop a hair line crack. Changing it look easy but I canít seem to figure out how to remove the two hoses attached to the tank. Could someone please tell me how to remove these. I have changed the whole coolant system on my jeep but these clamps look very different than I am use too. I found a picture below.

use small flat head screw driver slide out those wire clips. Then use slightly bigger flat head screw driver to pop out the hose (prying it on the edges, go around slowly). Just be careful not to break the conector at the end of the hoses.
