: Using the grill access (see picture above), use a 13mm socket, a short extension (say 4"), a universal joint, and another longer extension (say 12") to remove the 2 @ 13mm hex-head capscrews that hold the hood u-bracket in place.
You'll have to provide support for the first short extension up to the u-joint. Think one is in front of the bracket and one behind it. Probably a little tricky, but worth a try.
If that proves unsuccessful, maybe even from underneath with 2 long extensions?
