Seat Adjust Spanner

Thought I'd adjust the position of the seat over the weekend. Bolts (17mm) are in an cramped location and didn't have a TORX 50 bit to completely remove the unit. Someone else posted using a gooseneck spanner will save a lot in labour, found an el-cheapo double ended 16 x 17mm gooseneck in the garage which I sacrificed to the cause.

I cut off the 16mm ring, ground the rough end smooth and wrapped a length of spiral flex around the shank. You'll need to do this, otherwise you risk chipping some paintwork.
