They are a bit of a pain to get on,I found it easier to whip off the hose and remove fuel filter from housing. I could then get long end of 6mm Allen key on then and used a combination spanner on short end for leverage, once cracked you can get fingers on them.

I find it handy to use a stubby alen wrench.
I have something like this:

and it does the job - especially for the EGR.
