Sorry to hear you're having problems with the OMP. If you can't reach the screw (although I'm not sure why you can't), you could always just take a pair of cutters and clip the bracket (just cut right through it...it's not very thick at all) which would free up the a/c line. I think what you need is an extension for a socket to reach the screw. On my 99 the screw was not very far down on the tower, so I was able to reach it easily. If there is anything else I can do to help just let me know.
same here, I had no trouble just pulling the AC line towards the front of the car and fit the bar behind it. It takes a little work, but you can do it and not hurt your car. Theres a really good how-to on here... just use the search option to find it.
