why can't i get the muffler off??

I was taking off my stock euro muffler and cannot figure out how to get the last bolt off (the one you can't see on the backside) I know there has to be a secret to get this off easy but can't see it...anyone?

I've used a wobble extension or a flex socket on the end of my 36" extension. I go at it from the other side of the car so I can swing the socket wrench. I love that 36" extension for being able to get to bolts going across the car...

There are a couple of tool choices. You can go over the top with either a socket/ratchet or a short handle box end wrench. If you are a large fellow it would help to remove the valance (more room for big arms and big hands).

not sure what you mean by the "backside" but if you are looking at it from underneith the car, and it is the one closer to the front of the car, then I used a stubby open ended wrench. A short socket didnt have enough to get over the bolt, and a long socket didnt have enough clearance from the muffler. PB blaster is a mans best friend when it comes to rusted nuts (that doesn't sound right)

Use a curved wrench and take the bumper off.
