Squeeze in the fat coloured bands - there is one opposite side, underneath on each elbow.

Will the left-most green band push downwards, then the elbow pull off to the left ? (it doesn't seem to want to go down and I don't want to push to hard and break something)

There are "opposing" bands - you can't see the one on the underside. When they are squeezed together, sometime a slight initial push of the fittings towards each other is required to break the stick/grip of the O-rings inside the connector.

Reassembly with a smear of petroleum jelly on the barbed end, ensures a simple click fit.

A pair of right angle circlip pliers do the trick. They squeez both top and bottom "bands" at the same time - works a treat.
