A regular open faced wrench should work. Should be 13mm or 12mm bolts. Free the 2 bolts you can, then loosen the remaning 2 as much as you can. You should then be able to rotate the bearing housing enough at that point to remove them completely.

Waited 13 minutes!! For mine, I "borrowed" a set of stubby wrenches, which make getting in there a little bit easier. They are really pretty small. You'll actually be able to turn the wrench once it's on the bolt too. Good luck there RmR.

Just get an old open end, bend it as desired, and then cut it. You will use it over and over. Maybe.
