Honestly i would just cut those clamps off and put hose clamps on them. The heat sheilding should prevent them from melting if you are concerned with that.

Also to get that subborn SOB off, I would just cut the wire at the sensor, double wrench it (useing the box end) with the largest wrench possible and use your friend, Mr Leverage, to do the hard work...just watch your knuckles.

You can also use a special socket make for removing O2 sensors, but i would never try a line wrench on these (it always ends badly)
