If it wasn't in the way you would probably find it a lot easier to do the repair.

While I never had any serious firewall issues I did realize that there was a small amount of flex and wanted to do something to eliminate it. The brace transfers a lot of the stress from the cable away from the firewall and to a much stronger part of the chassis. It's a good tip for anyone with a manual trans/clutch cables setup.

So, bracing the interior panel does not help the outer piece of the firewall from flexing from the cable stress. Adding the brace in the engine compartment side directly transfers the energy from the cable to the much stronger part of the chassis on the wheelwell.
