Jim has a 5 series and a GTC which should be the same as a GTE.

I have 1 spare SE5 rubber bezel - but I cant remove the nut due to having busted a finger yesterday - and the spanner keeps slipping off and I dont have a deep enough 3/4 AF socket here

The SE6 ones are eight sided nuts Steve so a socket wont fit those, if the SE5 are six sided then they could be different.

shut in a car door - no rubber involved - metal on metal part of the car structure.
Also contending with a deep and wide split to the finger too

Never had one this bad before

My finger is doing a proper Tom & Jerry now

Ouch, I bet that throbs like hell :cry: Busted fingers were all part and parcel in the Mining industry and I know how they can hurt especially if they bust down the side of the nail.
