Just completed my rear brakes have the same issue. What you need to do is get a bottle jack compressed rear spring enough to take tension off the control arm out. Take a 19mm and a breaker if I'm correct and remove the bolt.then gently tap the arm and you'll be able to get to the screw with an extension and a 14mm. Then just do those steps in reverse to reinstall. It's really stupid but can be done at home

Get 14 mm deep ofset spanner saves taking swing arm off just enough to do it bit by bit slow but works
