Hello. If you are having trouble with clearance loosening the upper ball joint nut, then you may have to use a different tool.

If you are trying to remove your reservoir, I would double check that all the hardware is removed, and all the lines undone. Once all the hardware is removed you should be able to pull the unit free.
