    The rear most starter motor bolt. What is it, some kind of a sick ****ing joke?

    The bastard ****ting thing is ****ing stuck fast. Almost a full canister of plus-gas, copious swearing and threats of death by fire and the **** still wont ****ing budge. Even with the bonnet removed, intake and exhaust manifold removed, and washer bottle removed, there just aint the room to get a bar in there. Yet more fantastic packaging by the ****ers at Land Rover!

    I even tried ****ting the bastard 13mm spanner with a large lump hammer, but guess what? The bloody shaft of the lump hammer snapped, that how bastard tight the mother ****er is!

    Like I said, this is the rearmost 13mm bolt, not the 15mm lower one, or the 7/16's upper one. I mean, why have three different size bolts Land Rover? Why?


    Do you guys ever wish that you had bought a Land Cruiser insead?

    Done it.

    It only took 13 hours, but I bloody well did it.

    Broke my thumb, split my thumb nail, and pulled a muscle in my neck and shoulder, but I got the bastard off. The fecker must of been torqued up to about eleventy gazzillion pound foot!

    If I ever meet any of the production line staff from Solihill, I'm going to punch them in the mouth.
