Yeah, it's not fun. The easiest way to do it is to remove the intake manifold and the passenger side motor mount, then jack the whole engine up from the bottom and rock it forward so you can gain access.
And you're just on the other side of the freeway from the Trader Joes. That reminds me, I need to go grocery shopping.
