Front exhaust pipe installation- Warm the engine then retighten all the bolts & nuts

Its hard (maybe impossible) when the radiator and radiator fans are in the way, I can only manage to get to the 2 outer nuts... What do you guys do?

That is by the book and well done it is something people often overlook or attempt to compensate for by over tightening in the first place. But there is access enough and really should not take more than 2 minutes, i expect you are restricted with choice of tools 3/8th drive long 12 point socket with a shallow ratchet drive makes it easy some nuts you can get 1-2 click. It really is just a tool issue you have.

Thanks guys, Michael you were right about it being a tool issue... i was using a few converters to go from my 1/4" torque wrench to my 1/2" socket, which added extra length, ill buy one converter that does that.
