Suggested Solution

You slacken the rubber hose just a little,
The unbolt the calliper and pull it off the brake carrier,
The unscrew the calliper of the hose rather than unscrewing the hose off the calliper,
A little unwieldy but the only practical way to do it.
Screw the new calliper on till almost tight the refit same,
once bolted onto the carrier you tighten the flexi hose then bleed the brake.
