    Help required!

    What is the best way to remove the 2 torx bolts that hold the wing on, the ones that face away from you mid way between the front door hinges?

    Cheers

    remove the arch liner, then remove the little plastic insert that fills the gap between wing and shell, and they just unscrew...

    Yeah it was from the arch side. Off now one came out ok in the end, the other claimed 1 torx key, 2 torx bits and a torx socket, all decent brands. A chocolate brand bit in an impact driver ended it reign of frustration!
    no idea what was going on there, somebody with hammer hands did that one up.

    Annoying when people just swing on bolts, there are torque settings for a reason. FT is not a torque setting when I last checked.
