I need to replace the transmission cooler lines on my 2000 Olds Silhouette (4T65E, M15 transmission).
<br/> The fittings appear to be spring clip quick connect of this type of design: <a href="http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/1/1/573519-auto-trans-oil-cooler-line-connector-by-dorman-oe-solutions-part-800-605.html"

<br/> The ends of the new lines are compression-type flares.
<br/> I have not dealt with these fittings before and just want to know what I am doing before I start. As near as I can tell you just pull back the plastic cap that covers the spring, pry out the spring clip, pull the old line out, insert new line, reinstall clip and plastic cap.
<br/> I guess that just looks too easy. No messing with the fittings? If I have all of that right, how likely am I to need to track down new clips? I suppose its smartest to just have them on hand?
