Help?! Transmission mounts.

I am replacing my transmission mounts and was wondering if there is a trick to getting to the top bolt on the right side triangle bracket? All the others are fairly easy to reach but that top right one is out of sight and I can't even get a hand up in there to feel it let alone get a wrench on it. Any help would be appreciated.

As I recall, I used a couple of ratchet extensions to make a really long extension and then just went by feel, but it has been a year since I did mine and I've had quite a few brews since then...

I removed the complete arm when I did mine , its easier to fit the dampers on a bench to the bracket and then install the complete arm. There are a few options for the damper rate also , personally id replace both dampers at the same time. I used an engine / gearbox jack to support the transmission while I removed the mounts , just makes life easier.
