Ok so got em all off yesterday, and having spent 2 hours lying with my head in a puddle, in the rain getting wet, i found the bolts that i got from renault were too ****ing big for the holes!!

So i got some new ones this morning and have just got it all back together. It now sounds like a fighter :D boh!

Just grind the bolts off, no need to grind the flange off.
