Help: head sheared off bolt from crash - October 6, 2007, 05:16 PM

Anyone available sometime this weekend to help me remove a bolt whose head sheared off in my crash a couple weeks ago?

It's not something I'm confident doing myself and honestly don't have the tools to do it (drill etc).

Beer & food available. Plz call - 703 635 six eight nine five.

It's one of the bolts with a torx head that connects the subframe to the frame. Pretty big bolt.

You definitely need a drill and an easy out/screw extractor..

Did you figure out the rear brake linkage/master cylinder issue?

Yeah I think so.

I'm gonna have to borrow a drill & what not from someone for the sheared off bolt though. I'm just about out of discretionary funds.

Nah man - coming out from andrews is too far for this. I don't wanna ask you to do that. Thanks though!

Screwdriver (or something else that will bite in) and hammer. Hit it at an angle so that it will turn counter-clockwise. Heating the surrounding area with a torch would help with this too.
