147 JTD 16v Power Steering pipe change

Hi guys, seen some threads on this and have followed them up to the point where the damn 17mm bolt has to come off the (low pressure return?) connection... pretty much the penultimate task left after removing the wheel, all the wheel housing, pipe fixings off, removing the front bumber....

I just can't seem to get enough force on the bolt to turn it, its such a tight space to get at (despite buying a stubby Draper spanner) and its not budging!!

Anybody got any idea's on how to get at the bugger? Was considering heating it with a butane torch but I didn't think that would be particularly useful as its not rusted on, just very stiff!
