Doing another one on Tuesday, and have advised the owner that it can take about 5 hrs - always like to prepare owners with some margin and then sometimes the headlights need a polish too.

Dave mentioned he had some sort of work around for those pesky torx, will be interesting to hear his words of wisdom.

Keep well
Sorry, missed this
Had a few where the torx will not move, when everything is undone you can pull upwards on the front panel and the brackets the torx bolts hold on will pull up and over the rubber bung and off it comes. To refit you trim the upper overhang on the rubber add a little grease and the brackets will push back over the rubber bushes. As the front panel is held on in many other places the rubber bushes are sandwiched in place and still do their job

Thanks Dave, but Steve beat you too it. The OP's idea of locknuts from underneath once removed seems quite clever too.

Keep well
