Default Power steering pump removal

Hi, I'm new to the site, working on my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with the 3.8 liter V6 as we speak. I am replacing the power steering pump and am having trouble getting the hard line from the pump to the rack loose. Anyone have any tips to help me get it off.

I would've searched for it but I don't have the time.

No one has got an answer? Reason I can't get it off is b/c of the limited space. I can't get enough torque on the wrench to turn it.

I have the answer but you sure are demanding. You EXPECT someone to immediately give you the answer and if you don't get your way within 30 minutes, you make a post that everyone needs to drop what they are doing to hold your hand.

LOL, I only reposted b/c I saw that 3 people had looked but no one posted is all. That, and the van is sitting in the driveway torn apart (minus the hardline). We need the van (have 3 kids). Wasn't trying to be demanding.

pump is loose. I need the hardline (pressure line) loose. I don't have enough room to break it loose with a wrench.

Yeah, got it. I couldn't see the line and didn't realize it was a hardline until AFTER I removed the 3 bolts.
