Thanks Peter for the quick reply!
Yes, I did read the 'starter' method. Bit daunting but obviously works.
Should the ignition be disabled some way to stop the engine actually firing up?
Also, does the fact I have an automatic transmission have any bearing i.e. Should this method work still?

Makes no difference being automatic.
You don't need to disable anything...if it starts, switch off!
If there is a lot of locktite on the threads the bolt will undo bit by bit and easily if you squirt WD40 in the threads after moving the bolt a little bit.
I've used the starter method many, many times, it has never failed!
