Default 2006 a8 oil cooler

hey everyone this is my first post. I am trying to remove the oil cooler from 4.2l a8l. I cannot access the top left bolt for the cooler. there is a metal coolant pipe in the way. I removed the bolt holding it into cooler, but it still will not move enough for me to get to last bolt. i cannot see where it goes to loosen at other end. can anyone help me?

Default Is this the metal pipe you're talking about?

no. the pipe goes in on the top, not the side. it hits the exhaust stud before it comes out. wanted to see if there is another way before i try to remove stud.

when i click on the part for removing the cooler it shows the other kind, not the one i have. is there possibly another process for my model. coolant line goes on top of cooler, not the side.
