Question 103 Waterpump issue

I'm stuck in the middle of changing the waterpump on my 1991 300TE 4matic. I can't seem to get access to the rear two bolts. I followed the steps in the CD but it gives no hint as to how to get those back two bolts out. It looks like I have to remove the intake manifold and I'm not sure that I want to do that. Any body have a hint?

The top rear one is the only one that's hard for me. i bought a 13mm swivel socket, that helps alot. The bottom rear is fairly accesable with the correct length extension.

Thanks guys, I hope that the swivel and sonme different extensions will work. What a PITA. I think they could have engineered the whole thing alot better, it's ok for the assembly line, but little thought given to service work!. :p
