Try imperial sockets if the nut has shrunk from rust. very likely a 10mm use a hex socket.

Actually scratch that, I just went and checked it is a very shallow 13mm. Socket wont work unless you grind the end flatter as they have a bevel for easier location.

Be prepared to cut the pipe to get it off, it can probably be repaired at Pirtek but not always, each model seems to be a little different and aren't always compatible but this is not a good reason to scrap the car.
