Am I missing a wrench for this?

I need to get into the light cluster at the back, and to do so I need to remove the speaker plate, remove a rubber cap to expose a fastening bolt.

According to the manual I need to use the wee plastic jobbie that I've included a picture of, and it secures itself onto the fastening bolt. But then the manual says I need to use a wrench to lever the wee plastic jobbie, and I don't seem to have anything like what I need.

Can anyone confirm that I am in fact missing said wrench? Any idea what it's called so I can get one somewhere?

Oh God what a fool I am. The tyre wrench first and then the bolt collector is used so it doesn't fall and get lost forever. Oh well now I know!

Use only the plastic "jobbie" when tightening the screw back in,as the wheel brace will over tighten and possibly break something.

Re: Am I missing a wrench for this?

The nut is an extremely common part, used across many fiats. So common is this nut that my local stealer don't (or, at least, didn't) carry it in stock!

So, after losing one into the nether regions, I packed the void with foam pipe lagging. So now, any dropped nuts simply stay accessible.
Also, because this nut looks like it was made by crimping a bit of metal tube tightly around a thread, I adapted the head of mine slightly. By flaring out the head, it is now a much tighter fit into a socket (or the plastic jobbie), so making it even less likely to fall out.

Put the screw driver from the tool kit through the hole in the middle of the plastic jobby hey presto you have a wrench
