    Looking for some help again.

    Taking my sump off to give it a good clean and can't get to two of the nuts, the ones in question are nearest to the gearbox, the problem is that they are set at an angle and obstructed by the sump/ gear box so I cant get an allen key in there.

    Any ideas would be great?

    Its on my a3 1.8ts 2001

    Thanks

    Cool cheers for the tips, I ended up bending a allen key a bit to get it undone but couldn't do it up properly using this method so will have to go get a wobble bar.

    On the other hand my oil pick up pipe was almost totally blocked with grit so well worth doing.
