Yes - _extreme_ care in removing. The fitting is plastic, and just waiting for
you to be heavy-handed. Don't even try to undo the old clamp - the torque
required on a rusted clamp is beyond what the fitting will stand. Cut off the
screw that tightens the clamp with a small hacksaw. If it's leaking there, the
hose should slide off with no problems.
