Try a very long extension or multiple extensions and a universal joint socket.

So, theres no trick like cutting the floorboard for access? My mechanic is down in his back a little and hasn't been able to get a good set on the last two bolts. I'll let him know more extensions and u-joint in line. That should reposition him further back the driveline. Anything else?
Expert:  Neal replied 6 years ago.

That should do it. You will be further back. Also consider dropping the trans a little by removing the mount to give you more room.
