Hi Ray -
there is a spot that fits a half inch drive - they actually make a low profile tool for it - but a half inch breaker bar should work. Remove the vent valve for better access.
Alternatively you can jackup the vehicle on the right front side and remove the right front wheel and wheel liner. This should give you both better visability and menueverability.
Good luck - hope that helps.

Unfortunately, engineers do not ask technicians for their opinion when designing vehciles. If they did, my life would be a lot easier. Some things that may help - use a long extension, try it from a different angle - maybe even from under the car, try a wobble extension, or get a friend with small hands to help.
