I took them off and back on again with pliers with out any problems when I changed the coolant in my BA.

I took that plastic cover of the bottom of the car and got under the car to do the job.

these round heads on the hose clamps are just caps.
i pop em off with a pair of side cutters and you can then get a screw driver or socket onto the head as per usual.
