Heater Hose intake replacement

Hello,
The heater intake hose for my 5.7L has started leaking at the T section I understand this is a fairly common problem. I know I have to remove the wheel well cover to get to the lower part of the hose how do you guys deal with the clips that keep it on? my understanding is Jeep made these purposefully to keep people from doing work on the cars. Also are there any tricks to getting the upper end hose removed and replaced? I am finding it incredibly difficult to get my hands back there let alone pliers to undo the hose clamp.

Thank You
