You have 3 places where you can separate the lines: either end of the 
blue connecting hose, or the nipple into the reservoir. Any of those 
is okay, but especially with the latter, you need to be careful when 
installing the nipple that you don't snag part of the sealing grommet 
and pull it down into the MC. If your blue hoses are cracked, you 
could have the same problem there if you aren't careful.

I would try either end of the blue hoses first.
