Yes it can be done from the top. Loosen the jam nut (two wrenches required and turn the top of the rod clockwise, ya know, righty tighty lefty loosey. I don't know how the AC mech's get a three hour time allotment it took me 10 minutes.Whatever....................

it takes five minutes to take the belly pan off, and is much easier to gain acess to the linkage, i've done it twice already, just make sure that the oil pump are is straight when you are done, and does not rub on the side of the pump/motor, mine did when i was done from pushing on the connection to get it back on, just bent the arm back, good as new
