Quote: The 32mm socket got enough purchase on the front nut that it loosened.
Puleeese - use the correct size socket every time.
An over-size socket plus an extension bar = rounded nuts! Then try to remove the rounded nuts - you'll find out what the word 'difficult' really means.
If necessary, buy a new socket. A few quid spent will save you a lot of grief.

I don't have a problem buying tools, I like them.

But it's 30 mins drive to the place to buy tools, then an a hour further to the car (which is why I asked here about the size).

I thought, it's MY car and MY tools and I know how hard to push it, I'll have a go. One came off no trouble, the other was over the how-hard line.

Sometimes you just work with the tools (and advice) you have.
