Default Throttle body coolant hose

I am wondering if anyone has a trick to removing the throttle body coolant hose on the thermostat housing side? I can see it pretty clear and it has the factory spring clamp on it but I can't get my hand or pliers in there. I was thinking about removing the power steering reservoir to free up space.

So, has anyone done it and have a suggestion on which way to best get at it? I need to replace the hose it has a split in it and is just in a general state of being old. I am not looking to bypass it either, just replace.

Incase anyone searches, Yes removing the power steering reservoir gave me a ton of room and made it easy to get at the hose end. Also the reservoir o-ring was totally shot and needed replacing anyways.
