Well an overnight bath of penetrating fluid had no real effect and after much hammering and twisting there was no movement at all #-o

In desperation I removed the sphere which released a small amount of LHM+ fluid but nothing to suggest there was any pressure left in the system BUT shortly after I thought I saw the nut drop down to the unit, it had released itself with hardly any effort from a solid grip like some sort of gravity Ninja :shock:

So somewhere / somehow / something was affected which altered the struts attitude ... vacumn :?:
Skull's strut removed by some Ninja skills

No corrosion on strut :?:

Cheers for the gaiter CitroJim

Just got the original fault to replace now and buy some more LHM+ and we should be back on the road .....
