Good morning,

I attached the procedure for you as well as the pictures.

The top bolt you get from the top. You will need to move a harness out of the way and use a 6 inch extension with the 14 mm socket.

He? Who is that?

You do not get your hand in there, you get the socket with the extension.

Give it a smack with a hammer. If it does not release then you did not remove the correct bolt.
