1995 BMW 530 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 117K miles

I'm trying to replace my water pump. I have every bolt removed except for the lower bolt that is hidden behind the drive pulley. I don't want to have to take the pulley off, but I don't see any alternative since there doesn't appear to be room for a wrench to get behind the pulley. Is there a secret for me to avoid this fate, or am I destined to another several hours of "dealing" with German engineering genius?

How do I take the pulley off? The fan clutch was reversed, will the main pulley bolt be the same or will it be "normal". Thanks.

There are bolts holding the damper to the hub so stop your whineing and get to work
