Any tips welcome.


hammer a screw driver through and turn. Best remedy

I have a sort of strap wrench with a metal flexible dimpled & adjustable band- I think that it is an older tool but should be worth looking out for if interested.
Used on the 240 & early V70 and both have restricted access but it works with small initial movements- a piece of cloth sanding paper under the band can also help with the grip.
Trust it helps. Bob.
