does anyone have an answer to how to access the uppermost bolt that bolts the transmission to the engine block on the passenger side. I am considering dropping the tranny to replace the rear main seal and this one looks like the toughest one to access. Looks like there is a thin gauge heat shild on this side that if I remove I may pick up a little more clearance.
If anybody has an easy way I would like to hear about it.
thanks and Merry Christmas everyone

When the tranny mount is dropped, the tranny will sag and cause the engine to drop in the rear. We use a special long extension and a wobble 17mm socket.
