Question about 1988 Toyota Cressida
We used a ratcheting flex-head stubby gearwrench (and contortionist maneuvers) to break free the nut then used fingers to hold the bolt still while using gearwrench to move the nut (may be painful and cause cramps).

Holy hell these engines are tight. I had the same prob with my 88. Finally figured it out with about a good foot and a half of ratchet extensions. It'll help if they have wobbles on the end. You'll have to guide the socket by feel (cause you can't see the bolt, but once you're on it the extentions should get your ratchet in a spot where you can give it a good 1/4 turn
best of luck!
