Default 2009 WRX P0011 Banjo bolt

Hey all!
Iv unfortunately ran into the dreaded oil feed line clogged banjo bolt filter. I read just about every post on this topic that there is just figure out what the issue is and how to resolve it. The problem im running into is that no one clearly states how to take the bolt out. What I mean by this is that there are no guides and Im not entirely sure if the turbo REAAALLLY has to be removed just to get at this one single bolt. On top of that, There is very little information on turbo removal for the 08-14 wrx's specifcally. I did come across several turbo removal guides for just about every single year before the 08-14 models and after (15+). If there are no other ways to reach the bolt, is it possible to just unbolt the turbo from the up pipe, unbolt the oil feed and coolant feed lines off the top of the turbo, undo the inletpipe clamp, and unbolt the downpipes hangar in order to kindof "push" the turbo back an inch or so? Just enough to slide a wrench in there to undo the banjo bolt? Its a far fetched idea...I know, but i figured its worth a try right? Side note, anyone in the northern chicago area/suburbs that would be willing to help out?

Pretty sure on the 08-14 sti/wrx all you need to do is remove the intercooler and turbo/downpipe heat shield and the bolt is right there.

For reference, I pulled this off Google. That is the bolt on top there.

Unfortunately no, thats not the bolt. Thats the top of the oil line. Its at the bottom; if you look underneath the cold side, the bolt is in the cylinder head. Ill try to see if I can get a picture of it. Its about 2 inches past past the cokd side of the turbo towards the front of the car. You can just barely see it if you look at the right angle.

The bolt is dead center with barely the lower part of it exposed to the light. Its hard to see.
