    seems to be leaking from the inlet valve, but I cant get a spanner in to try tightening, or loosen and replace.

    Ive tried a tap spanner but theres not enough clearance round it.

    I cant get the tank bolts out as theyre rusted and I cant get a hacksaw blade between to cut them !

    Any ideas welcome, maybe just smashing the whole thing up ?

    Plumbers dream :cautious: try an adjustable spanner, open ended spanner, crows foot, depends on your tap spanner as well.
