Burst my clutch master cylinder at the weekend so have decided t o tidy up the engine bay since will be working in that area anyway. trying to remove the pedal box but cant work out how to remove the 2 bolts nearest the inner wing. Got all te other ones out just that 2 that cant get to. HELP ?!?!?

I'm guessing your pedal box is similar to ours over here. Can you see what type of heads the bolts have? Reason I ask it that over the years, these can get swapped for just about anything or they might even be original.

Regardless of bolt head, I use a long extension on a ratchet with the appropriate socket, posi-drive or allen-head tool to get at the bolt. Hopefully, whatever is down there isn't stripped and will come out.

What year is your 'B'? The pedal boxes are different.

Captive nuts on pedal box flange. Access from below in driver's footwell.
