    did you loosen it some already? If so, tighten it back up to get more clearance.

    otherwise, pull hard enough and eventually the socket will break!

    if really desperate, loosen up the engine mounts and raise it slightly until you can get it off.

    You must have backed the bolt up too far, because you did get the socket on in the first place, so yeah, tighten it back up and buy yourself an off-set box wrench.
