Heat shield removal help

I know this sounds simple, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get to the bottom screw on the heat shield. I need to remove my turbo and need this thing out of the way. Any ideas? It doesn't look like I can get my hand to it from the top or the bottom.

If you are speaking of the heat shield between the battery and the turbo and trap cat, there are two or three screws up top, which you probably have already found, and two down below. You have to jack up the car, crawl underneath, find the screws in the oil and dirt, loosen them with (I think) an 8mm (or was it 10mm) socket, remove the screws, then crawl out and pull the heat shield up and out.
