    You should not need to remove the rear wheel. Lift the bike enough to take the weight off the rear tire. Should give you enough room to get your hand in there. If not, remove the lower shock mount bolts and lift the bike some more.

    Buy a new well nut , put it on a zip tie, stick it thru the hole, install the clip, let the zip tie fall out:s
