bobcat hydraulic hookup

I cannot hook up the female line on my s130. The male line does hook up but the female line feels as if there is pressure behind it.
What to do?

NCSULandscaper will become famous soon enough
the lines were removed while still under pressure the last time. There are 2 possible ways to fix this. one is to crack a line on the hydraulics on the attachment to relieve pressure, the other works on my CAT machine, cut the key switch to the on position, and toggle the auxillary buttons to take pressure off the system before you remove the attachment. In this case, i would try cracking a fitting and relieve pressure.

crack the fitting, sometimes on mine I can use something to push in the deal on the fitting so that it blows a little out and then it hooks up easy.

on a bobcat you just need to hold in the auxillary button and the pressure will release.
