Are the clips on the intermediate brake/fuel line reusable? What's the proper way to remove these?

Most of the time its easiest (for me)from the top side, to squeeze them with pliers. Then remove

Works for me

As for reusing it really depend their condition. Often the finish or the seal at the base is not in the best condtion

Thanks for the top side tip- seems to be the only effeicient way to get these off. I found out what you mean by the seal on these clips. Do the repros carry the seal on them?

It's an interesting clip for sure. Was the seal applied to the clip and then rushed into place? Did Ford need two people to install these on the car originally?

Don't know if the repos have the seal (never purchased them)

The seal is "part" of the clip. Looks like it was molded on the clip originally.

No its a one person job. Just keep tension on the clip towards the hole as you spread the "wings" out to secure it and the retainer
