oil line brass fitting

The brass fitting on my engine was leaking, so I went to tighten it to my oil sensor sender and it appears to be really stripped. I need to buy a new one so I dont get oil dripping all over my bell housing; but how do I get it off the plastic oil line? I seems to be attached inside some how and I dont know if I should cut the plastic line to get the fitting off or what. How is it attached to the fitting is my main question? I heard something about compression fittings?

Here is a picture resembling what I have; not my engine though:

Turn the nut and remove it and pull down on it and the line will come out, then go get a new line kit it should have everything you need to fix it back.
When you get the line off it will have a little brass piece that fit's over the plastic line that holds and seals it off when you tighten it down, you can cut the line as long as you have enough left over to reach the sending unit. that is if your not going to buy a new line kit it's not very much money.

Take a small piece of the tubing to Lowes or Home Depot, they probably have the small compression fitting/ring, elbows and couplers.
