First of all, its either a 10mm or a 13mm Bolt ;-)
I don't have small hands, but I am able to access the bolt by 
removing the ISV from the intake manifold and then using a 
combination of regular sized open end wrench ( for leverage) then 
stubby ( for ease once initially loosened)

Don't forget to set the engine to #1 top dead center before you pull 
the distributor....otherwise you may have a challenge when you 
reinstall it and the engine timing is off....
