You should be able to do it with a wrachtet and socket. It really easy to do it.

That's what i thought too but the nut is spinning and there is no way to grab it and hold it Than i thought there is some kind of special open end wrench to grab the nut. Don't wanna use niddlenose pliers or something like that
