From what I can see now, it looks like a typical BMW quick connect hose with an additional clamp added later maybe???

Should be able to slide the c-clip out with a pick - its a bitch but I removed the power steering reservoir from its mount to free up some space when I did it.

Thank you for the reply and the video, I was able to remove everything except the clamp on the bottom it's different and couldn't see a clip to pull.
