    Stepper motor removal

    How the hell do you access the rear mounting bolt securing nut when the frame, TPS and a casting are in the way?

    With great difficulty I bent a spanner to go on it just to hold it to stop it turning .

    I have long nose pliers with a bend at the end. But getting it back in I use a lasso made of copper wire around the nut ,then push it off when done. Otherwise you drop the nut down the back of the engine, and it finds a different place to hide each time you do it.

    managed to wedge it with a screwdriver - it won't be going back on though.

    It's ridiculously fiddly. I made an alloy C shaped bar with nuts attached to make fitting it a piece of cake, but the first couple of times I did this I just superglued the nut to the bottom of the "top hat" spacer. You have to be a little delicate getting the thread started as the bond between the two parts is quite weak, but it makes the process a lot easier.

    all great ideas, but far too fiddly for me. I have fitted 2 x 6mm Rivnuts into the mounting bracket holes and drilled the stepper motor bolt holes out to 6mm. No more fiddling with me nuts................
    Engenia and Rick67 like this.

    How do you get enough room for the rubber mounting bushes?
