      Help needed identifying a tool.

      Hello everyone,

      So the dust shield of the rear struts of my Swift vdi 2013 had fallen and I decided to replace them with aftermarket ones. So, once I put in the new dust shields and began tightening the strut from above where the strut is mounted to the trunk the strut rod started spinning. Now it won't get fully tightened as when I try to tighten the nut the rod spins along with it.

      So I wanted to know the name of the tool that I could use to hold the rod and then tighten the strut nut.

      I can post the pictures of the rod but most of the tools I found on internet are of Allen key. But the swift has a different type of strut rod wich requires a special spanner or socket.

      PS : I didn't find a section for tools so posted it here.

      You don't need that tool. You can use an open ended spanner and tighten the nut slowly with a ring spanner. It might help if you use some oil on the nut. You can also try a vice grip.

      I tried with a pipe wrench but it would slip. I have to order the vice grip. Will get back once I get it.

      You dont need to buy one. Ude 2 flat metal bars about 4 inches long. Drill 2 holes at the ends and bolt them together with a spacers in between. You use washers as spacers just wide enough to grip the top of the rod.
