1996 Ford Ranger 2.3 4cyl. I know this may sound like a amatuer, but I can't for the life of me get to the 2 TOP bolts holding the transmission to the engine so that I may replace the clutch slave cylinder. I've tried every angle with extension bars, lowering and raising the transmission and engine. I'm at a loss. Any tricks that I don't know about.
Do you

Leave the engine on the engine mounts. Drop the rear of the transmission down and support it with a jack when you get it most of the way down you should be able to reach up from underneath with a wrench and get a bite to turn them. You can also get at them from above if you jack the back of the transmission up until it touches the floor boards (or almost) but it is easier form below. You can also (once it's removed) use a hammer to bend back the firewall right there to make things a bit easier for you Just don't hammer it forward as it will cut your hands when you reinstall.
