If you're having trouble undoing the nuts holding the coil in place, just try giving them a sharp blow (hit it hard I mean ) with a hammer. Then pop your socket wrench (or spanner ideally) on it and try hitting that round with short sharp blows. Make sure your spanner's a good fit though or you'll round the nuts off and regret ever taking any advice from me!.

To late

The corners are rounded, and when you give it a blow the nuts just fold double, imagine a small 50P coin with an upstanding edge around it.
that's what it is, and the edges just give way and fold in.. i think i'd saw them off if i would really need to get them undone, and then use molegrips to undo the rest of the bolt, and replace them.

If you want to see what i have been up to today:
