Question about 2003 Suzuki Aerio
You may need to use smaller-drive sockets (like a 1/4" with a swivel) to reach the tough ones. Sometimes they're obstructed by parts that can be removed as well - you should look to see if anything that is blocking bolt access is removable or adjustable. If all else fails, and the bolts are being blocked by parts of the frame, you may need to loosen or remove a motor mount and lift that part of the engine a few inches up to reach the last few bolts.
Without seeing a picture of what is being blocked, I can only take stabs in the dark, but those would be the most likely solutions that I can think of.
