I have a 2001 Ford Focus, which has had some stalling issues. Thanks to another thread I started and the help I received, I found the fault in the PCV hose. There are a couple of threads on the subject of replacing it, however one item remains. Does anyone know how to get it disconnected on the back side? I have some pictures included as well. There is one clamp that I have been wrestling with but can't get. Any help would be very much appreciated.

It's a one time use only crimp clamp like on CV boots only smaller. You carefully pry it off the manifold stub with a flat slot screwdriver. The outlet is straight and not barbed so hose comes off pretty easy if you are careful. Replace with a worm drive clamp if you need to. Bear in mind you are working with plastic there, if you overtighten the new clamp you WILL break the stub there.
