Righto - I really have pity for a Ford Apprentice mechanic. Why?
I just had the unfortunate experience of doing a simple service. Replacing a drivers side low/high light globe. Reading the 7 - 8 steps in the service manual i figure this would be easy. Nup. Ended up having to remove the battery to get in there to replace it. I don't have big hands or big wrists - however it was impossible for me to even remove the cable that apply power to the globes.
Ford get a clue - this should be a 2 minute job. Removing/installing the battery just makes this difficult. Looking at the passenger side the airbox is in the way - that looks more difficult to move.
Too hard guys.

AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
