If you're doing work under the car, you could jack up the transmission a little and that will give you room to put a vise grip on it and try to get it out that way. But if you jack, you will need to remove cooling fan so it doesn't hit the radiator.
Thanks for the advice. I'll try that as soon as I get home from work today.

sorry bring a old post back from the dead. I'm working on replacing my starter and I got the one bolt out from behind the engine. The other bolt is starting to get stripped. I got the bolt out sockets but haven't used them yet. Dose anyone have any ideas on getting this bolt out?
