The tip of the hose will separate from the edge of the sensor but once you move it around the other side of the sensor it tightens back around the nipple. Is there something I can spray on to loosen the hoses? They feel like they are glued on and I am not about to cut them off with a razor or knife.
Why the heck are these hoses on so friggen tight? Especially in an area you can't get your hands on it to pull or twist it off.
Thier so friggin' tight so you don't have an exhaust leak. Just grab the sensor tight and pull up hard on it. If a hose comes off with it just spray the inside with WD-40, let it set for a minute then grasp the hose and twist it off.
