I think if you remove the banjo bolt on the other end you can  
probably twist the hose and clamp together to where you can get a nut  
driver on the clamp screw.
You can do most of this by feel if you capture the washers when you  
remove the bolt and force the hose on the tubing first when  
installing but tighten the clamp

Is this friendly local Audi repair man named Lance?  Probably no  
reason not to give him a plug since good shops for s-cars are getting  
more difficult to find.
