In Wall Convector Vent Removal

kd47828 Member Posts: 3
My home was built in 1938 and has a number of convector radiators built in to the wall with an opening at the floor for intake air and a vent panel just under the window sill for the heated air to escape. A couple of these units have vents that need replacement but I cannot get enough access to get a wrench on them. The vents have an 8 point pattern for a socket but I cannot find a deep 8 point socket that will work. Does anyone have any history in attempting to remove vents from in wall convectors?
