trailer hitch receiver bolt removal????

Removed my trailer hitch And now need to get the bolts out of the frame. Any Ideas???

Is the frame open behind the bumper?

The rear crossmember is open on the back. It is a pain to reach in there!! if you lower the fuel tank it is a lot easier to get in there.

A fishwire tool works great. Get the bolts to a place you can see them with a magnet and feed a fishwire down through the bigger hole farther up the frame - wrap the wire around the bolt and pull it out.
