    Default what tool???

    I'm stripping a fuego, and want the bonnet hinges, but I cant seem to get any of my tools in to remove the bolt.there is ,on the other side, a very rough hole has been sawed to enable a spanner in.I could just rip the body and gain access, but am curious as to how you could remove it without the hole or doing damage to the sill.Any ideas??

    Very carefully with a short angled spanner, it can be done. But as you have found it is awkward. It is easier with the bonnet off the hinges, bolt the hinges to the body then fit the bonnet. The easy way when wrecking a car is to bend up the plenum chamber to create access.

    That would have to be the same type of spanner that you get the PS rack off with.Today is one of the few times I'm glad I have very thin,scrawney forearms,as the room around the rack is tiny, and the top drivers side bolt has enough room for maybe 45 degrees of turn,before the spanner gets flipped for the last few degrees.I hope after all this that the thing slides out the holes.
