can't adjust let-off screw for center keys 32 & 33

The center support bar, which is right close to the regulating let-off screw for keys 32 & 33, is preventing me from being able to fully turn the screws for both these keys. I don't have the full left-to-right range of motion. I've removed the adjacent keys to try and give me a bit more access to the screw but no luck. Is there any trick to doing this?


After finding a needlenose pliers the right size, and removing the neighbor keys, I was able to turn the screws enough to get the wrench back on.
