My mechanic refused to do the job he said is to long and complicate need to open all that suspension with cornering and all the stuff for to have access to open the nut deep inside. There anybody how have ideea about?! Many thanks! Appreciate in advance any advice.

Welcome Silviu.

Your location of 'west midlands' is a bit vague but have a look at our "Recommended Garages & Services" forum. There may be someone suitable within a comfortable distance from you.

The Map may help.

Unfortunately it does look like the whole rear subframe needs to be dropped to get access to the top mount.
