Help, removing fuel/brake line covers 02TLS

I am working on replacing the rear brake lines on my 2002 Acura TL type S.
I am trying to remove the covers #34 and #35 which cover the brake lines and fuel lines.
I cannot seem to separate the pipe clamps/ lines from the cover to get the cover off and leave the lines in place.,
I think they are #52 CLAMP, FUEL PIPE (91599S84A01)
I can remove the # 37 metal stay and bolt at the ends of the plastic covers and I can turn and
remove all the #51 CLIP, FUEL PIPE (91598S84A01).

How do I separate the pipes from the cover I don't want to deal with the fuel lines now and if I just pull the cover down enough to try to see how the pipes and clamps are held in I am afraid I will break something.

The numbers I am referencing are from the blow up parts diagram on acuraautomotiveparts dot org
FUEL/FUEL PIPE for 2002 Acura TL

I may be wrong it looks like there are U-channels in the plastic covers and because the fuel lines have some corrosion they have expanded to cause a pressure fit in the U-channel. I tried using a screwdriver to pry the fuel lines and they seem to be releasing from the covers. I will work on this tomorrow if it is not raining as I am working outdoors.

I used 3/16" Copper Nickel Roll from ebay and used plastic spiral wrap to protect line near the wheel well and metric fitting on the ends for the brake lines.

I think that Copper Nickel Brake Fuel Line Tubing Kit 5/16 OD with compression fittings would allow you to splice a section in the the fuel line, return line or vapor line but the original line I believe is metric.

Because of how tight the lines fit in the plastic tray it may be better to use steel line either factory, custom or standard lengths with threaded coupleings
