Default Best tool to remove radiator hose clamp

What is best tool to grasp radiator hose clamp in order to remove the lower front radiator hose? One or two of the clamps are pretty far in there. Is it like a long needle nose?

Thanks.

You want to use a hose clamp plier when dealing with those clamps. Something from this page will probably do the job:

I like that one too... but for eg: the AOS bellows, since it hold the clamps horizontal.... hopefully it fits it the tight space.

That red one for $39 is the same one they use to get to the diverter valve clamps on the TT. For some reason, Porsche always clocks the clamp nubs on the backside of the hose away from you, and there's no space to get your hands in there....and this is one of the few tools that can get behind there to open the clamp. Not something you use a lot....I used it once....but sometimes it's that special tool that makes the difference between a 10 minute job and one that takes 4 hours....or a bunch of colorful adjectives followed by a drive to the indy shop.

I think all of the clamps rotate if you push on the right side and the right dirrection... but I had my hour (plus) fight with one followed by replacing with a screw type clamp... the red one looks like a winner!!

+3 on the red one. I have that model and it makes getting the clamps off a snap. It also works great for the coolant tank clamps.
