Pre Book MOT
Go to garage.
While you are there, would they mind sticking an impact driver on the nut.
Tongue in cheek but if you have a quiet talk with the garage beforehand, they may well happily put your name in the book as pre booked.
Make sure insurance is up to date.

Or the old style manual impact driver can still be bought.
A few smacks with a 2lb lump hammer and they do loosen things
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
