If you are tryin to do this to your jimmy go thru the wheel well with a swivel on your ratchet. Works like a charm. If you are talkin bout your X you probably can do the same I am not sure on that tho.
I still cant get to #5. I have gone through the wheel well and Ill be damned if I can get a socket over it still. I havent taken the boot off the steering column or the heat shield. Will that make that much of a difference?
