CT doesn't have 32mm deep socekts, the SAE equivalent isnt deep enough and as it turns out, you can't just take channel locks on the solenoid and turn it in the hopes that it will unscrew itself from the head. Ask me how I know....

The shower valve socket set I have doesn't fit in the damn opening for the VANOS solenoid and I'm stuck. !@#%$!!

Car's a aprt for a second time and even though I tried to cover all my bases, I still can't get the damn solenoid out. I've got the cover unseated and moving though.
