take off the little black box attached to the heater core, this will make it much easier to get to the back bolt then a ratcheting wrench will be easiest to get that bolt off, that one is a real pain

Good deal Cory, let us know if it gives you any trouble, I know I had to basically wedge my entire arm between the block and heater core to get to it. LOL
