Did you remove the 2 bolts that hold the BBM to 2 rods to help support the BBM? They should be found underneath the BBM, one at the front and one at the back. the one at the front is easy to get to, but the back bolt is touch and go.

Good luck.

It is similar to the front one. If you run your hand underneath the BBM through the gap between the firewall and BBM, you should be able to feel for it somewhere. It's location is similar to the front, just in reverse. The bolt faces the firewall, so if you do end up finding it, it'll be a b**ch trying to get the spanner on it.

Lie on your back and poke your head under the car behind the left front wheel and move towards the front a bit and look up. There is a significant cavity there between the crossmember and firewall.

Injectors are probably stuck in there, If you pull the injectors out you might want to replace the seals while you're at it...just in case the old ones are ripped apart when you pull them out.

The only way I could get the rear bolt off is by using a 10mm spanner and then feel for the bolt to slot the spanner on with one hand...the other hand is to hold the spanner once it is hooked onto the bolt.

It is easiest if you have one of them ratchet spanner kits...those things are a life saver.
