Far easier and safer to pull the passenger seat (or drivers seat if you have to be on that side of the car). It is only 4 bolts and the seat weighs about 20 lb, very easy! You should never work under the dash by yourself, always have someone there to pull you out or call 911! You could easily pass out.
Whats the trick to getting the front right allen bolt off for the passenger seat? All my tools would not work in getting it off, almost like you need a very small allen tool.

You need a Wobble extension with the proper Allen wrench socket.
I was in the process of saying exactly what @CRG53 said! He beat me to it!
Thanks guys. Wanting to pick a set up for the future when I inevitably drop another bolt down there. Went to take the seat out to retrieve...but could not for the life of me get enough torque. Missing the Allen Wrench Socket Set.
