Is there anything other than what you have mentioned that I need to remove it? Do I need to come in from the wheel well to get to these bolts? I have the top bolt half way out, but the ratchet does not have room to extract the bolt all the way. Do I need to take off the exhaust manifold ext? I am still stuck

You can get to these bolts using a 3/8 drive long extension and go in from the front of the engine at starter level use a universal 14 mm that should work. Send pictures of what you are up against if it doesn't.

Please let us know what you find.

Cheers, Ken
