    When I did mine I remember being buggered at seeing that. There ain't no way you're getting a socket in there with the camshafts in the engine, not easily anyway, maybe with a 3/8 or smaller socket. Torque is actually not that high and I managed to use the ring end of a 9(???)mm 12 point spanner without damaging the bolts at all.

    Need to lock first bolts then rotate to torque. But wrench is good option to hold position prior to torquing them
