Retaining Wall Challenge

Along the rear (appr 50 ft) of my property there is a '23' year old cedar retaining wall meant to hold my property from flowing into the neighboring lot immediately behind mine. This neighbor's property is appr. 4 ft lower than mine. There is a solid cedar panel fence separating the two lots and it sits 5 inches from the retaining wall So, there is the retaining wall and 5 inches further toward the neighbor's house is the fence. The challenge is: the old retaining wall is leaning slightly (10 degrees) toward the neighbor. I have to stabilize the wall but it must be done without removing the fence. Working in such tight quarters has me stumped. Ideally I would build a new wall and then replace the fence but...Any idea on how I can manage to stabilize the wall with such a limitation?
Many Thanks1
