The bottom allen is easy to get from underneath. The top one is most easily accessible from the top. Since it is hard to get around the left side (the bolt is on the top right), you can "bear hug" the tranny and reach around with your right arm (head towards the front). If you feel around (or use a dental miror), there is plenty of room for a tool.

My tranny is black from two decades of road grime - I swear it is 3/4" thick. My hairy right arm was the perfect "pipe cleaner" to pull down about 2 pounds of crud on the first attempt. Wear glasses, and keep your mouth shut.
