You really can do a lot with some bent wire and a bunch of determination. 
The only way to take out the alum breather stand is to remove the exhaust, 
the rear fan housing half, and the fan. That's more work than you want to do 
here, I'm sure.

It IS possible to remove the breather box alone, but that requires a special 
tool which unscrews the big hollow bolt that secures the box to the stand. 
Details are shown in the Bentley manual. If you want to look for this tool, it is 
the same one that is used on Beetles, so you might find it thru some 
automotive tool supplier.
