Hello Prusars!

Hmm

I have had this happen before. I had to heat the hotend with a heatgun and remove the PTFE tubing by hand.  Be careful nto to burn youself.

It is often easier to unscrew the heatsink off the heatbreak, and push the PTFE inwards, towards where the hot end would be, rather than hold the black circlip against the heatsink and pull the PTFE away from the heatsink.
