Default Backwards 18mm bolt of bell housing?

I just need to remove the backward 18 mm bolt for the bell housing to finally get the engine out..." Little time to many things to do" How the hell do you get it out? Do you have to take the passenger side wheel off and work through the wheel well? Or do you get it from underneath some how? I want to get this thing out to finish all the R+R .. Thanks in advance

Yes, that is how you do it. Jack it up, remover the RF wheel and splash shield, also remove the oil sending unit. Get about 3-feet of 1/2" drive extension hooked up with an 11/16" six-point socket on the end. (That will fit more tightly than the 18mm.) I set the end of the extension that extends beyond the fender in the crook of a jackstand set at a height that allows the long extension to remain level, then pop it loose. See pix here: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=28558

Here you are... even more pictures depicting it'* location.

Excerp from other post:
First up..I put the engine in the engine bay and went to put in the backwards bolt. Anyone that'* ever pulled the motor knows all about finding this little gem. The painted engine and the non painted transmission with the light placed in the A arm for vision...OMG the perfect shot. Here'* a little progression for anyone ever wanting to see it'* location.
First pic..look right of the strut and between the wheel well bottom edge and the rotor.
