Help removing 91 legacy transmission

'91 Legacy Wagon, all wheel drive automatic 4eat. Trying to drop the
tranny. Having trouble accessing the four (4) drive plate to torque
converter bolts. I've taken the timing access cover off and can see
the bolts. 12mm wrench slips and 11mm wrench won't fit on it. Can't
get a socket onto the bolts due to the cramped space and difficult
angle. Have tried with a universal joint, 3/8" drive set. See the
picture at <a href="http://www.tcshp.com/subaru " target="_new">Looking at timing cover opening</a>

So I checked below: just to the left of the oilpan, I can again see
the bolts. However, the space is too narrow to apply a socket and or
universal adapter.

Can the transmission be dropped without removing these bolts? Is
there another way to get at them? If not, what is the secret.

Yes you have to remove those bolts. Do you have a good quality 12mm wrench? I ask because I know some of my china made wrenches I used to have are off (size). I used a snap-on wrench for these last time I removed a tranny.

Try using an offset wrench it works wonders. I use a craftsman one that has a 12MM on one end and a 14MM on the other.

So what SVXPERT said. :)
