Heat the joint to try and soften the threadlock. Clamp on a pair of mole grip/vice pliers and try and unscrew it. A last resort would be to drill a hole through it so you can put a bar through to give you leverage.

A decent set of water pump pliers can give you enough leverage to shift them.

same as fat dazza, pump pliers, if you heat it too much its a risk for melting the material

I presume the black nut at the body isn’t part of what you’re trying to remove ? (Does look like it is from the picture)..

If it isn’t, then as has been suggested a set of gripping pliers will assist, but will probably mark / ruin the bit you’re trying to remove...

I have the exact lance and did the exact thing over xmas.

Honestly, for me, it wasnt hard. A pair of molegrips and a firm grip and it spun off. It didnt even dent the black plastic karcher connector. It was in my cold garage which made the 'locktite' brittle so it kind of snapped. Give it a go!

Don’t use vice grips on that, use pump pliers or a small stilson
