get the tranny out. Believe me, it would be a lot easier if you could leave
it in and not have to touch that nut.

Now you got me scared as my clutch job happening this weekend.
Why did you need to undo that nut? I'm planning to leave this part of
exhaust. Or do I miss something?

That nut is a definite problem. The Bentley solution is a 15 mm half-moon
wrench bent at a more acute angle. There's a drawing in the Bentley
somewhere. I looked it up after the trouble we had getting the nut off my S4
for the clutch job. I took the car to the dealer for the job as I didn't
fancy doing in under my carport in subzero weather and the dealer lets me
work on the car along with the tech. We used a flex end 15 mm socket, but
had to go through several manufacturers to find one that fit - I think maybe
we ended up with a Snap-off. It was a long "one click of the ratchet at a
time" to get the SOB off and on. The tech decided he hated working on UrS
cars after that experience - it's a good thing I have the only two in town
:). I'd say the Bentley suggestion would be the way to go.
