From his description, I wouldn't have thought a Dremel tool would fit in there.

He talked about having the pliers held with one hand and the other hand yanking the hose stub, if I read it right. So if he had one whole hand in there he should be able to reach it with a Dremel. It doesn't have to be held at the axis of the hose, it can be 90 degrees to it, especially if he has one of the Dremel cutoff wheels. Failing that, the Sawzall should do it with a fine toothed or diamond abrasive blade, approaching at the same angle. I wouldn't recommend an axe or 12 gage.

I think he was leaning toward the 12 gauge there before the Dremel suggestion.

Actually, I think he was close to using TNT.

I would have stuck a for sale sign on it. "As is."

So, so close.

Except for the whole three to four hour commute each way if you're not driving a car.

I would have suggested a slightly less destructive approach; grasp one ear of the offending clamp and drag it around the barb until you can access both ears more easily. It will be tight, but should rotate around the barb if you can get a good grip with vise grips or similar tool.

I got the impression he could only reach at one angle, no room to swing.

catching up... I promise to wrap up that story later.

IN TODAY'S NEWS:

My friend, T, has a 2001 Honda CR-V, 4wd, manual transmission, and the clutch is gone. He's a hazard to navigation. I wanted to back the car into my driveway, he had to PUSH from the front while I drove. I can't wait to see the pressure plate.

Anyhow, we started last night after work, and we have the car up on jackstands, wheels off, some cables disconnected and we stopped when it became clear that a five dollar crow's foot in 19mm would save, well, save having to cut the wires from his backup switch on the transaxle. You know how some fasteners let you get a wrench on them but then expect you to apply torque by magic? This is one of them.

Anyhow, it was a good stopping point. And this morning, we're starting at the parts store. There are some pictures (partly as breadcrumbs for the way home), and I'll share them with you too. Should be pretty straightforward.

Famous last words.
