I was going to pull that plate myself after rebuilding the motor and driving it a little bit to make sure there were no large broken pieces in there. But then I found the problem with access to the two screws that you mentioned. So I cancelled my plans of pulling that cover. It definitely is in a bad spot. I think you are going to have to lift the motor some to get to those bolts.
