iisthemuffin, yes I do know that there's no way of taking it apart, but I meant like...there's a little space in between the bushing at the tee, so maybe I could saw that off, and then sand the inside oh the tee to make it normal again. Just an idea.

You can remove fittings, but it's hard to do it when the fitting is on the inside. Try getting a jigsaw blade and sawing the bushing from the middle to where it meets the tee's socket. So essentially you are sawing the radius of the bushing. Then get a hammer and a flat head screw driver and start banging in between the gaps.

When I take PVC apart I cut the PVC pipe down to where it enters the fitting, then cut a slice through the pvc pipe on the inside of the fitting. Then get a chissel and wack it with a hammer on the join between the pvc pipe and fitting. Works most times for me.
