Got nothing for you as I haven't hear of this "trick"

I was also able to get a better grip with a deep socket from the bottom rather than a wrench from the top. I think I will eventually be successful with the second one as well. This one is very hard to reach with the penetrating oil, however, so it may take a little more effort.
Awesome now get that other one and you will be golden

As I mentioned I believe you should be able to, I personally have never done it but I don't see why you couldn't. Best of luck and keep us....or me ... posted on your progress.
