If it is about the same as in an 8v then the screw is on top, you can't see it since it is usually covered by something else, but it is a 19mm wrench, and I think a 10mm allen key, you gotta losen the 19mm, tighten the allen, and when you're done tightening, tighten the 19mm. Not a lot of room to manouver there, I heard it's easier to pull it out and do it that way, that's what I'm gonna do next since the tightening for me did not do much at all, and if you do it too much, the box is as good as scrap metal, and a new one goes for $450 from what I saw, I think it was the sports package.
