Replacing kitchen sink sprayer hose

Hose is leaking under sink when faucet is on. Found out it's coming from where the metal fitting meets the rubber hose where it connects to the faucet. Want to go ahead and replace the hose but not sure how to disconnect from where it hooks into the faucet. It's not a screw on screw off type of connection. Any ideas? Name:  IMG_1301.jpg

If it is the silver hose, depress the white outermost ring at the same time you are pulling. There may be an o-ring inside that has a flat spot on it and can be replaced inexpensively rather than buying a whole new proprietary hose.

Pull out the pin at the top of the plastic branch piece.

Your faucet doesn't look familiar to me. You shouldn't have to replace the plastic piece, there should be no seals inside it.
Pull off the branch and you should see 1 or 2 O-rings on the faucet stem (the male brass or copper part).
Those O-rings can probably be replaced. If you do change them, put a little plumbers grease on the rings.
