    6 or 7mm Welly, I had to go and borrow a mini set of open end/ring spanners to make it work, though I undid them first with an extended socket set with a flexi joint for access.

    Odd, I managed to undo mine, and the car is the 155k mile one! You need to undo them with a socket first, because there's not enough room to use the mini spanners to get leverage on them!
