Hi Pug - the plastic cover can be very tight to get off - and usung a clamp type device can cause damage to the housing - it is best to get a proper tool for the job - most decent motor factors should be able to help. I haver never done the renault type but on Mercedes and the like it is a metal cup which goes over the end and has a square hole for a socket bar.
