Default Transmission Pan Removal RX330

Hi, I went to remove the Transmission Pan on my 2006 RX330 to clean magnets etc and there are a few bolts that are tight against the frame rail. What is the trick to removing them? How did you get at them, what did you use?
Thanks.

then attach the socket or closed end wrench and either jerk/jolt the wrench/ratchet or smack the wrench/ratchet with a mallet or something similar.

I tried using swivels etc on the two that are right against the rail but there is no way I can get it up there. Has anyone sneaked them out with a wrench?

yeah I remember those bolts. I think it helped a little by jacking up the car on that side. And lots of patients. But I did get them out. Tricky putting them back in too.
