Do you recognise these connections?

I wanted to replace the tap of my sink, but I do not know how to undo the connections.
I took a picture.
Do you think I can easily remove them or should i cut the plastic pipe?

Hi alex81
They look similar to an old version of the Tectite push fit elbows. You will not be able to remove the pipes from them so cutting the plastic pipes is probably the only solution.
