Leave it for a couple of weeks, talk it over with a few people, get your mojo back and come back for another bash at it.

Been there, done that, bought the T shirt.  If you start getting wound up you'll start getting impatient and that's when you end up breaking stuff just out of carelessness that could be avoided.  I also tend to get tunnel vision and totally miss really simple solutions to problems when I get to that stage!

that's definitely true. As I have sat and let the steam die down from my ears I realised what I could have done is put the nut on, and the screw in with some tight mole grips, the reverse of how I got the old one off. yes it would have mangled the end of the stud but after this there is no fecking way I am going to take it off ever again! And no I couldn't get it to exactly 10Nm but at least I could have had a better guess.  Sadly its all gunked up with threadlock now so its going to be a pain to get it out and cleaned up.  Might have to see if i can still buy a stud from Citroen but I am not sure how likely that is
