What do I use to change a power steering pressure hose?

Ive already taken off the end that is connected to the reservoir but now I am down by the firewall trying to take off that end. I have the drivers side tire off and it is on jack stands on the drivers side. Ive used a crows foot and an extension with no success. I get the crows foot around the nut but it seems like the crows foot is too big to turn. Is there other things I should be doing to get this off or do I have the right idea? I don't know if this matters but the car is a 2.4L

Do you

What you need is a flare nut socket. You can get a crows foot flare nut socket and that might work better. This type of wrench will get around more surfaces of the connection and make it easier to get more torque on it.
