Difficulties disconnecting W/H venting connections?

Anyone else had difficulties disconnecting Type-A and Type-B venting?

Are you having an issue?

This question is not really specific enough to answer.

Umm... yes, probably?

As Mike said, we need more from you to offer any advice.

Thank you all for your replies. The issue is actually with Type-B connections that i have found difficult to unlock from their click-lock positions. Attempting to gain purchase on the pipe wall, without crushing it, while attempting to anti-clockwise turn it can be a struggle.

I find that the difficulty is in new piping as well as work-worn, and perhaps distorted, piping.

Well sure, it can be difficult if aged and rusted.

I find replacing with new venting is the best option IMO.
