How to reach the center bolt on exhaust pipe a?

Am attempting to get the 3 bolts off my exhaust pipe that attached to exhaust manifold. I can't seem to reach the center bolt. The crossmember is blocking it. I thought about using a flared(or regular crows foot) crows foot and get it from top. Any suggestions?

I've always just used a 14mm impact socket and 2-3 long straight extensions, never had a problem... Not sure why you can't get it.

Same here. Hasn't been hit in the front and pushed it back? You might try just taking the bolt out of the top of the front mount and see if the engine drop some at the front (pivots down) enough for you to get a socket and extension up there. It is much easier if you have the front end in the air. Got ramps?

yeah it was easy. I didn't even need a swivel extension. Just was worried and wanted to be prepared for anything as i work on it in an apartment parking. Got everything off, including the gaskets. The right gasket was sort of a pain to pry out. Bolts made a big cracking sound when first cracked loose, which at first i thought the bolt snapped but it didn't. This was alot easier than i expected. I think soaking it in pbj for a week made the difference. Now just got to put gaskets in and button everything down.
