Some people have tried hot water, soap, grease, etc. Any type of lubrication or any way to heat it up will work. I've heard of what a pain it can be, thats why before I take mine off I'm getting silicone hoses. Also, attached that before you try an other connections.

hmm.. when I took my timc off to get at my downpipe, it was fairly easy to get back on. Maybe I just attacked it from the right angle or just got really lucky. But yeah, I think the next time it comes off, I might look into a set of silicone hoses too. I hope they come in black instead of red or blue. Time for some more research.
