I tried to do this but I need some tips. What tool did you use to turn the hex key?

I cut a piece off of a 14 mm hex key, and am able to fit it into the transfer case socket just fine. However, when I come in with my wrench and fit it onto the hex key, there is absolutely no movement to loosen it, the wrench is pretty much pressed against the surrounding housings. I am only able to turn it in the tightening direction. When I flip the wrench around, now there is not enough room to fit the wrench head on the hex key. Is there any other tool that someone can recommend? If the head and shaft of the wrench was just a bit slimmer I would be able to get the wrench on to move in the loosen direction.
