Power steering hose clamp
 
Probably it's really simple, but could somebody please tell me how to tighten this type of hose clamp?

They look like Oetiker clamps, which I know how to tighten, but it seems the sample principle doesn't apply here.

These are crimp-on clamps. One time use, replace after removing.

Yes I know, I have a new set from the dealer. I only donīt know how/where to crimp them.

Just replaced my power steering pump myself and had to break that clamp apart. I ended up replacing with a regular hose clamp of proper size. No issues.

they are a pain in the ass to re-clip.

just put a normal hose clamp on it.

Yes a pair of blunt pincers worked, really easily actually. Because I was in a hurry I made another thread here, there is more info there. Thanks!
