How to remove RG output jack

The jack socket on my RG550 is not functioning and I want to remove it to fix/change. The problem is that it requires some kind of wrench to unscrew the thin nut inside the cavity and I don't know what type of wrench or tool is required.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Re: How to remove RG output jack

If memory serves, you need a 13mm wrench, but I have also used needle nose pliers.

I managed to get it open just now using a wrench and needle nose pliers as advised. The 13mm was a touch too small on my one so had to use a 14mm which only just about fit.

Thanks for your help.
