How to remove the iac?

95gt 5.0

How do you get the lower screw out

I got the top 1 with a 5/16th socket but can't get the socket in the lower 1 even with a swivel!!!

Am I a idiot or is there a trick to it? Everything I've read says to use a 8mm or 5/16th socket.

I have a 8mm socket but it's deep well & won't fit as there isn't very much room between the screw and a black looking pipe running on top of the valve covers. Also I noticed when I use my shorter 5/16 it won't go on because there is a curve on the IAC above the screw that seems to intrude the way!!

HELP PLEASE AS I NEED TO CLEAN THE IAC

Im pretty sure you need to remove the throttle body to get the bottom bolt out of the iac. Its only 4 bolts hoding it on, no big deal.
