Get a 15mm wrench, cut the open end off, but leave 2-3" on the box end. The box end will fit, but won't give you much travel. Mark on the wrench where it hits, grind a notch in it, and go to town. We also added notches so a pry bar would fit.
FWIW the passenger side nut froze on my truck, and we ended up pulling the engine to get at it. I had the nut half on, half off, and it was froze solid. Whole stud ended up coming out once i was able to get a longer wrench on it. I've got 3 other collectors here, 2 are missing the same exact stud. But its the same exact threads as the bolts, so i just robbed a bolt and threw in my collector.
