Welcome to the forum,
That’s the oil line, you don’t want/need to completely remove it to change out the acct, if I remember correctly you can just gently bend the tab a little to get the mcct in place. Just the tab because you don’t want to kink the line in anyway

Maybe the lever and fulcrum..... Place a screwdriver under the line, wedge another on top of the first screwdriver, twist or pry, gently. Don't want to go too far, it can be harder to put it back.
