[DML] Fuel Accumulator

I'm having severe difficulties removing the fuel accumulator (it is 
the original). I have a set of stubby wrenches, but the 17mm nut 
connecting the rigid fuel filter line and the 19mm nut on the fuel 
pump line are too close together and at such angles as to not really 
allow fitting the wrench on the 17mm to loosen it. The only angle at 
which it will fit on puts the end of the wrench about 1/4" from the 
frame wall, and the trying to loosen it using that 1/4" gap to turn 
only results in the accumulator rotating in its mount until the 
wrench is against the frame (even though the 4 bolts holding the 
clamp are fully tightened). I have soaked everything in penetrating 
oil to no avail. There seems to be just not enough room. The only 
possible idea I have come up with is to buy a crowfoot wrench and 
hope there is enough room and leverage to use it, but it doesn't 
appear promising. Anyone have any advice/tips/techniques/secret 
weapons? I'd appreciate any help and perspectives. Thanks all,

PS - Can anyone tell me the size and length of the screw that is 
supposed to hold the A/C control panel to the radio bracket? Thanks
