    1/4 drive socket set 5 or 6 mm hex bit it's a tight fit but possible or remove the brace think its 2 17 mm bolts either end ! Good luck :)

    Moved brace and managed to get extension bar on , job done, uprated battery to a 800 ccA and 85Ah (3.0tdi spec) fron 480 ccA and 62Ah what a massive difference when car turns over on start up!!!!
