    Default Torx screws on coil pack.

    Does anyone have a method of unscrewing the two Torx screws on the top of the cool pack in me engine bay? Sounds daft doesn't it, but mine are as tight as a camels a*se in a sandstorm and won't budge! Will they only come out with an air gun? I've already bent the end of my cheap Torx tool so went out to get a better one and bent that b*gg*r un all!......

    If car runs take it for drive get it upto temp and try again.

    If not then could try local motor factors for freeze and release spray.
    Or try just lightly tapping the torx socket with a hammer.
