    I 've never heard of a 7mm spinner..
    Do I need a special tool to open or remove the hose clamp?
    This lower tube/pipe is very difficult to reach and I don't want to damage it!
    Thanks!

    Is the hose clamp , the crimped type ? . If so then you will prolly damage it , I've never come across one of them that can be reused . I normally replace them with a jubilee clip , which requires either a 7 MM spanner , or a flat blade screwdriver to tighten up .

    Yes indeed, I think it's a crimped type (never seen one like this). The pipe is difficult to reach so removel of the clamp(with cutting plier) will not be easy.. . Is there some special tool for this?
    Thanks

    If I'm proved wrong then I'll Ho,d my hands up . But I think there's only a special tool for crimping them together . I've removed them before , but prolly in a more accessable area than yours seems to be in .
    I normally get a flat blade screwdriver in there and work it around . To relieve it's stubbornness
