Do not get under the car unless it is up on jack stands. They can be had for $15 so not using them is foolish in my opinion. Once it's up on the stands try to push the car off before crawling under. That should give you a more secure feeling.

I don't mean to be insulting with this question, but did you get the clamps off before trying to pull the hoses off? Mine came off quite easily and I can't imagine they could get "frozen" on. If all else fails you can cut the hose off right past the nipple. Make sure you have enough "play" left to reconnect though.

Good luck!!
