There is a u shaped clip on the nut side (opposite of the rubber line) that you pry off straight out towards you.

Put a flat screwdriver between the lip on the clip (left side of the bolt on bracket as you look at this photo) and the metal part of the rubber hose and twist the screwdriver up while prying against the threads of the hose.

It has been a while so the procedure is not fresh in my memory. I seem to remember that that flat piece in the photo just in front of the flared line slides out. You may have to remove the retainer ring on the front side first.
If all else fails it looks like you could remove the bolt from the frame rail slide the whole bracket forward and remove it. Then you could take the whole assembly study it and work on it in a vice.
