Replace Blower Motor Resistor (Tool Used)

In my attempts to replace the Blower Motor Resistor in my 2008 F250 truck, the location of this resistor is in a tight spot behind the glove box.

My question is, if anybody has replaced this resistor before, what did you use to remove the 8mm screws on the housing? I got the left one off,
but the right one is in such a position that it is difficult to get an 8mm socket/ratchet to get it out. Any tips?

I used a variety of short and long extensions and two swivels. The biggest difference was having a buddy to turn the wrench while I tried to hold the socket on the screw. I went from the side of the dash squeezing the socket between a bunch of wiring looms ect. Good luck and whatever works.

Thanks. The Ford Engineer who designed it to be in this location should be shot.
Or it is a conspiracy to make one give up and take it to a dealer who charges
$120/hr and uses a special tool that does it in 2 minutes. lol

HHahahaha, I think that appears to be the magic tool, "patience".
Maybe I'll devote next weekend to getting that 2nd screw out. lol

I had a much harder time getting the one screw back in but a magnet would have fixed that.
