PB Blaster... Hit it with some of that, wait a few seconds and you will hear a "ping". Then remove the clamp.

You have to use some kind of penetrating fluid.

Take a long screwdriver, a hammer and hit it a few times. Trust me, just wack it, it will pop off.

Dead blow won't give it the sharp shot it needs to break the siezure. I used a16oz claw hammer on mine and it popped right off!

pb blaster and a small pry bar is how i got mine off, i wouldn't suggest using this method if you plan on trying to keep that clamp, mine got mangled but i wont be using it again so i didn't care, try soaking it in pb, nothin else i tried worked but pb did, then just work your way around the clamp with a small pry bar or a flat head screw driver
