What would you do? 400E

My power steering is leaking bad. I got some new hose, clamps, gaskets, etc. and went to work on it. I need to remove the return hose BUT I can't get the reservoir off because of the inverted star bolts and I can't get to the other end of it because the exhaust crossover is in the way. I tried to remove the crossover, and I rounded off the nut and I can't reach the other nut with my extension. STUCK! Been a miserable day. Any help appreciated.

1992 400E current
1988 300E sold
1973 280C totalled
1973 280SEL never got it running
1971 250C my first love but rusted out

The m119 stuffed in to the w124 is a PITA to work on.. I suspect there are a lot of 400/420e's out there with leaking PS because of this.
