A/C compressor mount removal

Replaced my a/c belt today....it was a pain to remove/loosen the front right mounting bolt, pretty tight space, I wonder if a L-shaped or half moon 13mm wrench would work better here?
Something like this 13mm Injection Pump Wrench Tool VW Audi Mercedes | eBay

Tools, tools and more tools, we can never have enough tools!

We usually use a RATCHETING COMBINATION WRENCH.
You can get them in various flavors. Maybe our host
here has some in their tool section. But... if you borrow
one, don't forget to clean it and put it back in the
right draw.

First post nails it. You have three other bolts/nut holding that plate down. Plus a tension bolt. A stubby gear wrench will get that bolt tight enough. Some folks leave it out altogether. -j

I hardly think twice about making a special tool - out come the torch and/or grinder. L-shaped, Z-shaped, reduced OD combination wrenches along with shortened combination wrenches (custom stubbies) for compressor suction and discharge line fittings now populate my tool drawers.

A very helpful tool from Snap-On. Long offset 13mm box end wrench. Very handy with the A/C compressor and those hard to get to heat exchanger nuts. Part number S8704
