Shimano GRX rubber hood replacement

A few weeks ago I came off my gravel bike and put a big hole in the top of one of the rubber hood covers. I have bought a replacement pair but on inspection it looks as though fitting them without removing the levers from the bars (and disconnecting the brake hose and shifter cable) is going to be difficult, as the rubber is going to have to stretch a lot in order to pull over the lever body. Can it be done without permanently deforming the rubber, and if so using what technique?

Cheers
