Ha ha.. sorry, I had the exact same problem, and after one hour trying to get it off with a normal spanner, I took it to the autoelec, and just got him to do it. You need like a weird shaped spanner, and even then it's a pain in the a***.

drop the back back tranny mounts and tilt the engine a little. it will give you a bit more access.
