Ok..If one has a problem on hoses and is going to discard them anyway , then you can cut the hoses at the fitting and then use a deep socket on the hex/flare end of the hose to aid in removal.
Another trick is to always keep these old hose ends b/c they make great little line and caliper caps when doing brake work where one has to unhook a caliper or line and wants to plug it. You just plug these ends [ male and female] with golf Tees in the rubber part and then you have either cap with the correct flare and threads for use when lines need capping .. Throw them in the tool box for the next time around...Very Handy.
