A lot of people find removing the driver's side rear wheel helps. I don't bother with that, and a stubby wrench to be able to swing it in the confined space. Really isn't much of an issue.

A stubby wrench is key, a flashlight helps to find the nose bleed which is not too tight and easy to loosen. An assistant to press on the clutch is required.

An adjustable hood prop eliminates the need for someone to hold the clutch pedal down.
