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 use a universal to help or a 1/4 inch drive set up, this will allow enough room to remove the bolt.
