    I had the exact same problem. I held the housing from underneath with an oil filter wrench while someone else used a socket from above. I think is was tightened a lot more than the "15 Nm" written on the cap...

    Thanks to you all for the welcome,and advice,but !,i still cant budge it ,i am going to have a word with my local vx stealer to see if they can help,as up to now they have been brilliant with all of the 'electrical' problems that we have had,it has cost vx and the stealer a fortune in parts,and the car was way out of warranty.But just to add insult to injury a pratt pulled out in front of the missus in the GSI ,result,one insurance claim for a new bumper and paint £600 anyone !.Oh well.
