Honda HRT 216SDA How to replace left handle bracket

I need to replace the left handle backet on my Honda HRT216SDA mower. Do I need to remove the entire drive system to get the 3 bolts that attach this bracket to the mower deck? The 3 bolts are inaccessible since they are behind the drive unit. Only other option may be to remove the grass shoot plate rear discharge to access these bolts.
