as said......only way is to drill em out......and they are not cheap......excellent suggestion by gibot123 disconect if in engine bay, its near the hinge for bonnet, pull it though to wheel arch, re route and plug back in !!
Duh! Silly me - I did as said - disconnected it at engine bay and re routed it - easy - lol.
I've changed the entire suspension and it took a lot longer than anticipated. Its an 4r5e to get the damper assembly back in .... at which point I noticed the harness was routed in front of the damper. Just soaking the old brake hose fitting now, got a new HEL one to fit. It looks like its going to be hard to take apart
