Question about Chevrolet Corvette
If this is a metal line tube nut on a flare fitting, then make sure you are using a line wrench. If rusted try PB blaster or another good penetrating oil. As a last choice it may require heating the caliper slightly where the line screws in with a small torch or induction heater. Use caution not to burn yourself or catch the car on fire. Most penetrating oils are flammable. Once the line brakes loose gradually work it back and forth until it loosens up.
If it uses a bolt with copper sealing washers then you can use the same procedure. Leave the caliper mounted and use a 6 point socket and ratchet to brake the bolt loose. If this does not work try an impact gun and the appropriate 6 point impact socket. Just remember to be patient.
In the event that these methods fail or if you overheat things with the torch and damage the hose then you can probably replace the brake hose for $20 to $30 but don't forget you gotta get the fitting on the other end of the hose loose without damaging it also. Good luck.
