installing 200tdi fuel shutoff solenoid

I bought a new fuel shutoff solenoid for my 200 tdi. Crazy British engineering /design leaves one side of the solenoid flush against the mechanical fuel injector throttle body...therefore, no socket can be used (probably couldn't get the drive in there anyway). A bracket that holds the throttle cable obstructs probably the only other area where there would be enough travel for an open end wrench to loosen the fuel shutoff solenoid. The upper bolt on the bracket was easy enough to remove, but, the bottom bolt was too tight to fit a socket drive in the space (maybe I could get a socket on the side of that nut closest to the fire wall. Has anyone else replaced this item? If so, DID YOU HAVE TO DISASSEMBLE THE ENTIRE ENGINE TO REPLACE THE SOLENOID? Seriously, any pointers or advice would be welcome.

Thanks for the advice. Jamie, blaming the Brits was only in jest. I feel the liberty to do so since I have Brit, Welsh, Scots and Irish blood running through my veins, not to mention a little German. Hope you didn't take it seriously.
