Thanks Tom,
appears it is just going to be a SOB job due to the very limited access.I will sleep on it, just don't want to get stuck once I start, as this is our only vehicle! Nice to have all this friendly free advice though. Great forum. Thank you.

Oh yeah, it's a pain in the ass. You'll want to have a swivel or u-joint and a magnet handy. A flex head gear wrench may come in handy as well.

Thanks Dodgeman, tried to contact Remerson228,but as a new member I am not allowed to contact him directly (yet) Any suggestions as to the best way about contacting him? Sorry to trouble you again.
