You need a 10mm swivel socket and extensions, it can be done but the nuts are soft, almost copper? They round easily so beware. My rear 02 bung blew out a couple years back and I had to swap mine out as well. Used, I bought a pair. I never touched the engine mount bolts, just swivel socket, extensions, and I believe a ratchet wrench from the right side.
Its doable, just be patient.
