F150 STARTER REMOVAL

1997 Ford F-150

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Ford F150 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic

I am trying to remove my starter on my truck and am having a hard time removing the bolts that hold it in place, I cannot access them. Any ideas on how to easily remove the starter bolts without all the hassle of removing the exhaust manifold?

=============================
The bottom stud should be pretty easy to access from underneath. For the top stud I used an extension that was just long enough to get my pivoting socket wrench just past the nose of the starter.

My problem now is getting the starter out. Let me know if you have any luck.
