    Careful you don't snap them - they often corrode into the case. You will have a world of pain then . . .

    Any tips?
    First I will daily spray lubricant (don’t how you call this oil) on the bolts
    Wait for one week and try to loosen

    I would mix diesel with some thin engine oil,
    30% engine oil & 70% diesel .
    Apply to the bolts & bolt holes where possible, leave to soak in overnight at least,
    longer if possible.
    Re apply so as to get as much lubricant in as possible.
    Be careful were you go with the diesel as you probably know it will destroy most types of
    rubber .

    Thanks for the tip
    I will lubricate daily for the next days and then retry.
    Had the same issue with my old Mini Cooper long time ago,.,..,
