Go to the passenger side, remove the tire and splash guard. Now remove the bracket that connects the diff cover to the engine block. Then use a bunch of extensions and you get get right to it.

Taking the rear manifold off is more trouble than what its worth when the engine is installed.

I'm with Dan. Much easier to snake some extensions underneath the manifold.

Also, it would be much safer if you removed the oil pressure sensor. I've broken a couple trying to get to that bolt.
