  1. Update. Job sorted by chewing and drilling off the heads with a 90 degree drill extension! Thanks to you all for your help and input. https://www.screwfix.com/p/erbauer-angled-bit-holder-160mm/9929V?kpid=9929V&ds_kid=92700048793290430&gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=CjwKCAjw5_DsBRBPEiwAIEDRW8dzIaqPMyYPDe41E-D3EPcoaYQ_xdHU5Ga_pQPYcEXqJOyRfygpfBoC6TsQAvD_BwE
  2. Lithopsian,I've attached photos of the position of the little blighters image%3A247615
  3. 😂 Lotus love giving out challenges
  4. Thanks Timbo. Like Jonathan said, the space is very limited and the bolt is hidden in a recess and facing away, so access is very difficult. I have ordered a 90-degree drill attachment which I've been told has worked on other Elises with the same problem. As you stated, I am then going to drill into the head and should hopefully be able to remove it or cut the head off, then celebrate! Such a simple job turning out to be a total nightmare 🤬
  5. Jonathan. I do, but it won't fit into the space. It has been suggested to me that I buy a 90degree drill extension (which I never heard of) https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163845402463 and drill the head off with https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F133175712100 Apparently it has been done on a few Elises. Will let you know how I get on. Again, thanks for your and everyone's help, it is much appreciated.
  6. Gazlar53 Thanks, It has a bottom part to mine unfortunately. There is a bolt holding the top part of the clam to the bottom part which is as you described, this one is holding the main clam to the bottom of the windscreen frame. It's technically known as a 'pain in the ass' 😭image%3A247615
  7. Hello again Jonathan, sorry to pester you. 'If' lol. I tried thcutting the heads off with a dremel but I can only get to it it an angle and that's not working. So I'm giving in again for the weekend! Did you use any special Dremel attachment? Ta, Mark
  8. Fab. Thanks for that, I'll give it a go now. Rather be down the pub!
  9. Hello Jonathan. I bought a Dremel yesterday funny enough as a cheap imitation died on me! I tried to get at them with a diamond disc on the dremel extension but had difficulty getting to them. Did you do it with the doors on?
  10. I need Lotus owner's wisdom and experience! I am trying to remove the front clam from my Elise S2. I have removed all the bolts etc except for the dome headed Allen bolts that are on both sides of the rear of the front clam, accessed by opening the doors. You can't see them as they are facing away and have two struts obscuring them. They are now rounded so an Allen (hex) key won't fit. I have tried rounded head bolt removers but they don't work as I can't apply much pressure due to the position of the bolts! Anyone out there had the same situation? I've been trying for 3 weeks now and I am out of ideas. Will I have to remove the doors?
