No, you just want to stop the nut turning, lock it up with the mole, they will move about but will not turn full circle. Then use the spanner on the bolt to undo.

I am guessing you didn't use lusol prior to starting!!

If there is enough room, you might get a splitter in there.

Cheers

If you are really stuck, I could be able to look at it tomorrow. Although its the holiday weekend I'm still working so you could bring it down here.

If you had brought the kit with you we could have put it on in the workshop yesterday, but its lovely and sunny today, so I presume you're outside, working away.

You numpty, it would have been so easy to pop them on while I was under there.

Never mind, at least you've got it done now.

Nice wee car you've got this time.

Cheers
