The connector is located under the sink just below the main faucet.  It will be the one in the middle that forms a "U" shape (going back up into the handle.

.
Push quick connector housing firmly upward until unable to push any further in the meantime you will hear a clear “ CLICK” sound.

 

Pull down on quick connect housing. If you cannot pull off, the quick connector is secure.

 

If you want to pull off the quick connector, push quick connector housing upward, then press the clip and housing together to pull down at the same time.

My quick connect is different. The hose for the handheld sprayer threads into the quick connect.  The quick connect is installed on the copper line. It must be removed so I can remove the threaded lock ring. Once both of these are removed, I can install and reassemble

Wow - not much of "quick connect" huh.:smileyfrustrated:

 

I checked on the Glacier Bay help desk to see if there was a similar question that was answered and didn't find anything. Also, I can't seem to find an image of that specific model...

 

Try and see if there is a tab on the side of the plastic connector that can be pulled out. some of the older QC had this as a first step.

 

 

All I can offer is the possibility that it may not actually be a "quick connect" and may have to be removed old school.  

Here is a special faucet wrench that should make things a lot easier for you.

 

 

I apologize for being stumped.
