To access the nuts on the torque converter you need to remove the starter motor. and turn the crank by hand slowly to line the nuts with the removed starter motor.

My A4LD had a small window at the bottom of the inspection plate to access the torque converter nuts. Starter will have to go regardless tho... Have fun w/ the flex plate bolts lol.

If you're also going to swap in that manual, get a shop manual! I'm a visual person, works better than hearing a description.
