Just changed mine - I used a thin openender that was bought cheap from bunnings for $1. Was a little tight and had to get at the right angle to make it fit.

Grind a 14mm? spanner down (like a cone spanner on pushbikes).

Its far easier to break the top of the f**k one and get a full ring spanner on it to remove.

don't evertighten them as they are alloy.

What size was the spanner that you used?

From memory I think it is a 14mm - I'll go out to the shed later and double check. Someone else might be able to confirm this though.
