Need some heat shield help

Hello everyone, I need some help with taking off the exhaust manifold heat shield on my 4th gen prelude. I have googled and read a lot of topics regarding this, but in none of them have i found info that would help my problem.

I am wondering is it possible to take off the heat shield without having to take out the o2 sensor that goes trough the hole on the heat shield? From just looking at it and kinda wiggling it around i go the impression that i have to take out the o2 sensor with the shield still on to be able to take of the shield. Now that's a real problem for me because i live in Serbia and the only way to buy a tool that could POTENTIALLY work on this is to order it on ebay from the UK or US. (shipping is pretty costly) And even then I'm not sure the tool would reach the sensor bolt with the shield still on.

So I'm just looking from guidance from more experienced people than myself.

I just want to take off the shield strip it and repaint it and put it back on because it looks hideous. I would prefer to do this without taking the o2 sensor out if its possible.

Is there more than 1 way to do this?

Would this tool reach the sensor bolt even with the shield still on?

Or do i have to take the shield off first somehow?

Sorry for the long post, and sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm just new to the hobby and don't want to mess anything up :)

I managed to take off the shield without taking out the sensor. You can close the thread.
