Here's the diagram for your clamp bracket

You can see that all that holds the tube in place is the end nuts.
Apply penetrating spray to the tube/bracket joints,
let it soak overnight, use a wrench on the end nut
and attempt to rotate the tube and nut. If it fights too hard,
apply more spray and let soak overnight, try again.
Gentle tapping with a wood dowel to the tube may help the spray loosen the rust.
