Rear brake hose tee fitting

Is there a trick to disconnecting the brake hose tee from the hardlines on top of the rear end? Hard to see and get at from under the car and it's a rusty connection. Rather than fuss with it, should I just cut the lines since I'm doing a 10 to 12 bolt rear end swap and will need new brake lines, tee and hose retainer bracket for the 12 bolt anyway? I've already taken off the rear brakes and am getting ready to drop the 10 bolt out.

There's a clip on the front side that holds the line onto the crossmember. The hard line from the m/cyl attaches at that point.

Based on my experience, it would be best to separate the two lines before you cut anything as time may have made that connection had to loosen without damaging it. Leaving it on the chassis is like having a 3rd hand.

Once it's loose, separate, remove the clip, and then the flexible line.
