Crowsfoot wrenches


Recommended Posts

Got a job on family car that requires the use of crowsfoot wrenches, anyone got a recommendation for brands? Keep in mind Its a one off job therefore cost is kinda important, can't justify a small fortune on something I'm probably going to use once or twice.

A cheap set would probably do the job.

If however, space is tight with limited arc of movement to undo the nut (Is it injector pipe removal?), you may want to consider the exact size from Snap-On, as the offset from square drive to crows foot flats is different when you flip it over. I found it particularly useful and essential when removing injector pipes on a lion V6!

For reference, I already had a cheap set, but bought one 17mm crows foot from Snap-On for circa £17.

As above or weld a nut/socket to a cut off old spanner.

Yeah but they're shiny...... I will end up destructive testing them.....perhaps not intentionally, but in my world, everything is a hammer.
