Have you tried going through the wheel well? I think there may be an access panel that you can remove.

I never found the access panel. It just took lots of breaks, patience and swearing. I think the biggest part was finding how low to lower the subframe. I was stuck at only having 1/4th of an inch left to remove it for about a day.
I took a long crow bar and with the subframe lowered, I wedged the crowbar and the balancer came off from the bottom and lifted upwards.
