Been a while since I did this. I had combination of stubby wrench and 1/4 drive sockets. I think had to use 12-pt wrench on it. A ratcheting wrench helps.

I am pretty sure I gave up on that one... ie what I did was loosen it all as much as I could and then slid/pushed the new one in that place and buttoned it up.

The only thing I could find on youtube was being done on an 2004, and he went at it from the top using a couple of long extensions....I don't know if that can be done with this generation, but may be something worth taking a peek at.

There is definitely no room as Jeff is asking. The only solution is a good 'ol wrench. But even then the bolt is too long to clear. I ended up again as I recall using a very thin ratcheting wrench, loosening it as far as I could (which results in the wrench getting stuck) Popping out the bushing and just sliding it in from the side and bolt it back up. Completely removing it (I had new parts) was impossible!
