    Sometimes they are a little sticky...gentle prying with a short flat screw driver has worked for me.

    Yes, it opens up. A screwdriver, small hammer, piece of wood hit with a hammer. Just work on it, it will come. Once it breaks free it will be easy the next time.

    the bolt slides thru the housingof the clamp, if you can tap the top of the bolt it will slide down thru the housing and release.
    the problem is, at the factory, they glopped a ton of loctite inside the housing and on the bolt so its like glued together.
    if oyu have a small precision blowtorch you can try heating the housing area of the clamp, it will loosen the loctite, but be careful, dont burn anything!!
    i beat mine loose the first time with a hammer, took me about and hour to get that clamp off!!!
    clamp kept spinning, cuz it was sorta loose but not free yet!!
    you will see when you get it off, clean off all teh loctite
