560SEL Valve cover question

My timing chain and related parts arrived today, so I got started. I'm having difficulty getting the right valve cover off. There are two hoses the cross over the cover, appear to come off the AC manifold with one hose going to the fuel distributor the other to a solenoid next to the distributor.

I can't work the cover out with these hoses in place. Am I safe in removing them or will I lose freon? I really need to get at the guises, the guide on the other side is beyond beer bottle brown, it's damn near black.
