    you need either a special 'go through' socket that allows you to hold the centre still while undoing the nut, or use a box spanner/ring spanner or the like... 21mm sticks in the back of my mind as the size of it, but i'll be corrected.

    Top Tip... spray the top nuts NOW with WD40 as they have a habit of rusting on and they can become very tight...a little time to soak works wonders.....
