Ok, I’ve skinned my knuckles for the last time!

If your car has Euro heat exchangers like mine, you know that access for removing your valve covers is not very good. Has anyone in this situation come up with a technique that works?

Stephen,


I use a brake adjusting spoon down through the bale and prise against the cover.

Or, bend a large short screwdriver approx. 45°.
