So recently I hit a speed bump and cracked a small section on the oil pan. I ordered one and received it. The problem is getting off the oil pan. On opposite sides there are about 6-7 screws which my friend and I have taken off. But the difficulty comes while trying to access two specific screws which are at an impossible angle. The thing is that the screws are not completely in line, which makes it very hard to screw them out from a 90 degree angle. How can I get these screws out? Will I have to use a specific battery operated tool or normal husky work tools? It's a 2001 Jetta with a 2.0 4 cylinder engine.

Swivels, extensions, shallow sockets, and a ratchet.
Depending on what is blocking access you may have to remove/unbolt something else or lift the engine slightly to gain access.
In this video he had to remove the belt from his AC compressor and move it slightly. Not sure what year of Jetta in the video though.
