if the bolts are facing the diff then undo the nuts?  as long as you can hold the harder to get to side you should be fine.

 

The only issue i've had with it is the rear sway bar is in the way, so have had to undo it from the brackets so it could be swung out of the way

try getting your arm around and use the spanners above the t/shaft.

 

use a bigish screw driver through the uni to stabilise if you cant any other way, ie handbrake and 1st gear.

After having the gearbox in and out of mine about 6 times now I find it quicker if you drop the front diff mount so you can easily get at those bolts.
