Remove the rubber engine mounts. This will lower the motor and also tilt it more forward. This will then allow you better access to the bolt.
It is important to get the rear bolts correct as incorrect tensioning of these bolts is the most likely cause of the head gasket going between the rear cylinders and the water gallery.
It is too late now, but you would have been a lot better off with studs instead of bolts as they allow better tensioning of the head.
