[QUOTE=Fonzi;17823858]Sounds like you found the answer. I recall using long extensions for some and smaller up close tools for others.
Three of the four nuts are easy (if you ignore the lying on your back in a 85'F garage part of 'easy') - regular gearwrench or open ended freed them up, and then you can spin them off by hand.
The fourth is a b****h to get at. I removed the 10mm holding the cruise amplifier in place, and dropped that down with the bracket, then used a long extension. Not looking forward to putting it back...
Hope this info helps someone. My guess is that the car FCP described in the link above had the booster replaced in the past, and someone just didn't bother putting the 4th nut back on...I can see why.
