    That's tight in there. If the socket you have is too fat, try taking it to a car parts shop or similar where they sell single sockets and see if you can get a narrower one. If not then either try to contact the manufacturer to see if they can help or replace the taps.

    Bloody lousy design that , as JC suggests you need what they call a “deep”socket, if you know a friendly car guy he will have some .
