I have removed radiators from Mk6's and Silver Wraith previously, so apart from knowing the long process it didnt phase me too much. One of the last tasks, is removing the large bolt at the chassis at the bottom. This initiallly was hard to move, which possibly was a sign for the dilemma I'm left with. The bolt turns and turns and wont release,despite a bar being placed behind bolt head to jimmy out. I'm suspecting the bolt has part released from the chassis however the metal sleeve inside the large rubber mount and bolt shaft may have rusted together? I started to unbolt the bracket housing the large bolt, until discovering the last rear bolt, being near impossible to access with any spanner.
So I share the problem with the brain trust, how do I remove the bolt, what am i missing?
PS Apart from missing,an oxy torch.
