Because of where you live, and the continual use of sodium chloride on the roads, everything rusts badly there. Getting brake lines loose can be a real bear, and I've had to resort to the careful use of an acetylene torch to make them come loose. I've also had to just replace lines as well. Chryslers were always one of the worst for it IMO.

The hose should unscrew from the line. Use lots of penetrant and make sure you work the fitting back and forth to release and corrosion. Using a brake line wrench helps a lot by grabbing more of the nut. It kinda wraps around the nut. I just hold the blocky looking part with a vise grip. Jus be careful of to twist the line if it is seized. Hope this helps

I know what you said, but when you are all said and done, you may be forced into replacing the line too, especially if not careful. You need to be using a high quality flare wrench. As said, visegrips for the block that the line threads into. If you get the fitting to come loose, you must be very careful, as the line is likely corroded to the inside of the fitting, causing it to twist as you turn the fitting. If this happens, you will twist the line off. Only recourse with what you have, is to unscrew the hose block off the line, keeping the fitting still. Screw the new hose on, and tighten it the same way. You may have to manipulate the line to get the hose pointed in the right direction. Its a right hand thread, turn it counter clockwise to loosen it.
