HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

LOL.. There a bit of a dog huh!

I have seen that top bolt make grown men cry. The easiest way to get the thing off is by using a few extension bars, and uni joints so you can undo it from the front of the manifold.

Also, while I was under your car I noticed that your +ve power lead to your starter was damaged. It had a split in it's insulation. You might want to change it or something.

Good Luck.

bmw

that was my only gripe, although the inlet manifold was awkward to get off it could be done ok with the right tools and knowing where the sodding nuts were cos u cant see them. could get a bmw head off an stripped in 45 minutes. They were ok to work on. The only time i met the nut on the starter was on a 318 manual and got absolutely stumped putting a starter bolt in on an old 535csi coupe
