I agree with Kneale. You should just be able to
squeeze one in there.
 I've had one so rounded one time I had to drill it

 & some words of advise.....when you get to the point
of removing the WP bolts.....use a good sharp T-30
torx. You may want to use an extension with the torx
bang the end of the extension with a hammer to losen
up the crud that is inside the threaded holes.
 Use a 3/8th's drive & when you start to losen use
extream inward force/pressure so the torx is inside
the bolt end. & don't stop once you start to losen.
Those bolts/screws are very....soft!

 Just take your time & if there's any problems...well
you know :-)
