The orthoscope may also be able to reach front transmission bearing.

The usual process is to remove the transmission. Whether the orthoscope method is even possible, I don't know. But if it isn't the only method is to drop the transmission.
There is absolutely no way to get any type of otoscope behind the flywheel to see the IMS or RMS, believe me, we have tried several of the smallest and most expensive on the market, and none of them worked. You have to take the car apart.
