There are blade-like (sharp edged) locking mechanisms located on the female fittings (actuated by small tabs) that serve to hold the male fitting in place. If you don't FULLY DEPRESS AND HOLD these actuating tabs while removing or installing the males, the sharp edge will nick the o-rings on the male fitting, and cause a fuel leak. So pay attention to any gas odors.

Also, if the tabs of the locking mechanisms do not return to their full out position, the female fitting can leak when the males are not inserted.

A thin film of dielectric grease on the o-ring and fitting will help it slide in/out easier and help prevent nicks.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but what do you mean by female and male? I know there are 4 o-rings on the fuel lines that would be male (#22 and #23 in the image), but are there o-rings up in the fuel pump housing where these connectors are inserted too (female)?
