Use a pair of pliers to loosen the hose pinch by turning it counterclockwise a couple of turns. Continue to loosen the hose pinch by hand until it comes free from its threads. Slide the hose pinch down the tube so that it does not interfere with removing the hose.

Using a hobby knife, carefully slice a slit in the bottom of the hose to allow it to slide off. Be careful and go slowly so as not to damage the nipple underneath. Use a metal prying tool or flathead screwdriver to pry the hose up off of the nipple.

Use a metal rod or screwdriver to widen the new hose so that it will fit over the nipple. Slide the hose in place. Push down on the hose clamp while twisting it clockwise to thread it in place.
