hi Guys
gave my 1.8vvt to a mechanic friend to replace the camshaft pulleys. he returned the car saying he couldn`t remove the bolts. he also bent the kit i gave him to lock everything in place saying he couldn`t get a spanner on the camshaft to hold it (it says do this in the Haynes Manuel).
he also said he didn`t want to break the bolts.
Q just how tight are these blots and how hard is it to undo them?
Q anybody got any hints or tips?

many thanks in advance
