Heater Hose Leaking/ No room to work!

I have a 1988 528e and the heater hose between the intake manifold and the fire wall is leaking. There is absolutely no room to work! If anyone has an easier plan of attack then cutting my hand in half to fit behind the manifold, i would really appreciate it. Thanks

get an asian kid to do it. or get very ingenuis with very long pliers. i think i remembered cutting the old one off but when i put the new one on i put both hose clamps in the middle of the hose then was able to get one side on by hand then had to use needle nose to get the other side on then with a long extension and flathead screwdriver, moved the clamps into position.
I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming
