Default Front drive shaft removal (nut issue) any tips appreciate it

I am having a lot of difficulty removing the 8mm bolts from the transfer case end as there is little space to get a socket in and the ring spanner just rounds off while the open end does the same seems like ridiculously heavy torque for a small bolt anyone had this issue? How did you manage?

Sorted it out found the guard behind the yolk can be slid back guess after 20yrs of build up it needed extra encouragement

You need a better ring spanner! I use an old Sidchrome I have had for 30+ years. I also have a German set with a name starting with an 'S'. The new Sidchrome are junk, probably made in China.
Gradually I am building a set of air hammer type sockets to replace the cheap ones I keep on breaking. Those sized bolts should come undone with a good 1/4 drive socket.

Have fun! Its too B###dy hot down here to be playing with cars.

Replace the nuts for next time if you have rounded them a bit

its 7/16, not 8mm, might help with not rounding the edges.
