How to remove fitting from intake pipe?

All,

I'm kinda stuck on how to remove this fitting from the intake pipe? Don't want to snap the fitting or break it. I tried to pull, no luck. Can't twist due to other components connected to the fitting.

Any advice or ideas would be greatful!

I can't remember the combo of squeeze and pull.. but I had trouble getting it off my older car. Can I ask if you're trying to get the whole intake off? How the heck can you get to the retaining clip down by the cold side? I'm looking at my car, and had it all apart, but couldn't figure out how the heck to get to the clip. It's at least a foot deep in the engine, so I would have to use a very very long set of pliers or a screwdriver, but risk not being able to get it out or losing it down the engine bay.

I'm installing the last part of the FTP Boost and Intake Pipe kit. All has been installed but this one. Taking my time on this as I continue to analyze. In order to get to the retaining clip is to disconnect the pipe from the turbo itself. I have look from the wheel well and at different angles to disconnect the piping from the turbo. It is a project to do, but in the end will be satisfying. However, this part of removing these clips is what I need guidance on.

Here are some photos of some of the FTP piping install....
