1.5 days into a Picasso 1.6Hdi gearbox removal and as if accessing the starter motor bolts was bad enough (3 hours for 2 bolts), I found a last bolt (I hope!) hidden at the front. Unlike most of the others it comes from the engine side. The bolt head has just enough room to insert a 16mm spanner from below if the exhaust heat shild is pushed away hard. But even my shortest spanner is hard up against the rad. There is no room to remove the bolt with only about 3mm clearance above its head.
I really don't want to have to remove the rad and/or exhaust manuifold!
If you've overcome this problem please let me know how you did it!
Otherwise this 97k pic may end up at the tip just due to the known weakness of the dual mass flywheel.
