Help with a bolt !!

I'm trying to change the power steering pump on a 1997 Toyota Corolla. I took out all the bolts that need to be taken out except for one. I'm not sure if there is a special procedure to do that. It is called: pressure line-to-pump banjo bolt. It is a regular bolt with a star in the middle. I found a socket that fits it perfectly but no matter what I do this bolt isn't turning. Any help/tips appreciated.

You need to get a large breaker bar and try and remove it. These things are notorious for being VERY tight.

A simple ratchet does not have enough torque.
