I'm not sure what you are actually asking. But, spanner is simply the British term for what we call a wrench. Haynes manuals use British terms like boot/trunk, bonnet/hood, etc. Hope this helps. PreachJohn -- If you're asking what I was asking (and figured out) you're referring to that odd hooked "pin spanner". The trick for me was to figure out what I was supposed to hook the spanner onto and then twist like a normal wrench. I was trying to adjust the shocks on my motorcycle and it became much easier when I noticed the gear-like ring below the springs that worked admirably for getting a decent grip with the spanner to twist the adjustment ring.
