Hi All, as I’m useless with anything mechanical (no really!) I only have basic tools! (Or is that I’m only a basic tool!) Any chance of some assistance with taking mine out?

I really want to get them refurbished before Lotus in the Peak (as they are not in great shape and I’m embarrassed by them!)

I have tried to undo them but only have a small Allen key and can’t move the bolts. I really don’t want to do any damage!

I would take it to Gav’s but without seats I can’t drive it back and want to clean out the interior while they are out.

Any help greatfully rewarded (beers/tea/biccies etc).

Cheers in advance.

Taff.

I’ve got the tools for the job to help but it’s finding the time to come across to you. I’m in Chesterfield so not too far and I know Papplewick.

Hi Taff, I can't do anything today but could maybe get over to you first thing tomorrow morning if that helps? I'm between J28 and J29 so probably only about half an hour away. Have an assortment of tools and previous experience from my old Type 49 S1.
