The bolts are 13mm, remove the top one first, then the bottom. When installing, install the lower bolt, then the top.
You should be able to reach around the starter and the car body to position the bolt, then guide a socket onto it.
And of course disconnect the battery as the + lead goes to the starter.

the bolts are actually 1/2" (12.34mm), got to give it to ford for that nice mix of imperial & metric bolts just to fcuk you round.
a 3/8 drive socket with universal joint & extension should see you through easy as piss.
Do it yourself you lazy bastard it's not that hard, & alot cheaper.
