Here's a photo of what it looks like "up there", a 1/4" 10mm socket with a long extension works best IIRC (might be 8mm, its the same size as the bottom screw).

7mm bolts...use a 1/4 small rachet with and extension and 7mm socket. I find it best to take the top two off then the bottom one. You will be doing it blind sided but just feel for the bolts.
