Greeting all.
Got a t4 800 special. having probs releasing the spare wheel, wheel is held in place with a bracket, secured by two bolts, one works fine and comes free completely, the other doesnt fully tighten up (cross thread?) but wont fully release either event when loosened, any tips on getting this wayward nut off? ive tried using the weight of wheel and arm resting on it, to no avail.
Cheers

Hi mate welcome to the forum

Only one of the bolts comes off and the other stays on the van but you move the wheel cage to release i have never done this so dont know which way to move it.
Hope this helps you should try and get to one of the area meets loads of advise and help.

Remove one bolt completely then push cage up and to the right, there is a slot for the tyre lever so you don't break your fingers
