I agree with Ben.  I changed my EM with the engine out of the car,
which is WAY easier.  However, I have put a wrench on all of my EM nuts,
so I know it can be done.  Shorty wrenches are your friend here.  You
might even want to buy a cheap wrench to bend and grind down to get
at the most difficult places.

I don't know how old you are, but I would wear a back support belt and
buy lots and lots of Advil.  You will need it after leaning over for
so long.

Good luck,
