There ain't no easy way on that one. If you remove the fan, radiator and belts, you can dismount the a/c compressor for better access. I understand Snap-On does (or did) make a special tool to get in there but, for a one time job, I didn't even bother to ask.

Been there, done that, pain in the ass. I did it from the bottom with alignment help from the top. I had to mix and match sockets and extensions to get access without taking the AC pump off or radiator. And then, it was just part of a turn even time due to access. Used a floor jack under the engine to position it. My upper MM bolt fell out. The ford dealer wanted close to $40 for the dam bolt! I got a generic metric bolt for a couple of bucks. Take the bottom bolt off the back mount before you try to raise the motor.

You need a 18mm double jointed wobbly socked
