You could lower the tranny a bit to allow you to get to the bolts from below or jack it up some and try to get them from above. I usually get them from below with about 2' of extension on my ratchet.

I donít now for sure but the 2 bolts in question might be the dreaded 12mm (external torx) head bolts?
Put a swivel on the 2í extension, pick a socket of choice [12mm external torx the best if that is what they are, 9mm 6 point might fit OK] MAKE SURE SOCKET IS ON BOLT SQUARE and test how well it fits the bolts, if doesnít fit real tight STOP and open this post.

What ever you donít round a bolt off or you will be pulling motor and tranny as you-net or cutting open your floor to cut the head off the bolt.

Let us know how the project comes out, or if you need more advice. Update the bolts in question they might be #12 not 12mm (external-torx). Which ever size they are, once they are removed take them to some place that has a good bolt selection and have them matched with a bolt that has a standard head on it. Then throw the oddball things away. Hope all goes well.
