It's by far not an easy job, if I remember right it's a 32mm deep socket, it's also crimper, so if your old one is dirty and rusty, you're going to struggle to see or find the crimp, you'll need a hammer and chisel to take that out before you can undo the old one, the crimp is there to stop it from working itself loose or turning over time.

I have 32mm spanner and was no where near right size it was at least 10mm smaller but I have nothing bigger than 32.

If its the same as the 307 then its a 41mm deep reach socket

failing that a hammer and chisel or if you can get access think i removed the brake disc and got a good grip of it with a pair of stilsons if its really tight

hardest bit of the job is trying to stop the strut turning once the bottom arm is disconnected

I had crowbars and all sorts jammed in about the hub and wedged against the subframe to stop it turning. other option is remove the hub or strut and try it on a vice/bench ..a second pair of hands will make it easier good luck
