You can CAREFULLY!!! take a punch and a hammer and try to sping them. They shouldn't be that tight so it should be easy.

Or try getting your hand back there and twisting the clip to loosen it up.

Good luck! Depending on how they twisted off they may drill out easily. Naturally, you have to be careful not to drill out the threads on the other piece. That's the hardest part!

Doesn't your garage stay above freezing? What is the freezing temperature of Water Wetter?

Why is it that every time I see "FUCK" in a thread title, I know it's the Big "O".....or YZFRob.

I'm starting to think the Oddy/YZFRob relationship is the same as the Jackson sinblings thing. Notice you never really see them in the same place at the same time?!?!?!?!

I DID IT


here so everyone knows i talked to a guy that knows his shit!

anyway, the screws with the allen key head are the main ones,
you know like right in the middle of your side panel, they usually have that large aluminum holder/washer behind it?
and the same thing on my lower side 1 peice side panel.

anyway, he told me (and man this makes so much sense)
get a drill bit the size of the HEAD, then drill it out till the head falls off, (sure i drilled into the washer part too, but who cares)
and so i did, off came the head of it, and then i pulled the panel and off comes that washer, leaving me about 1/4-1/2 inch of bolt to wrap some channel locks around it


ok now i gotta get that anti freeze in there, DAVE i dont wanna take a chance bro

lol Ody. Thats how I would have suggested. Screws screwed at that point anyway. Just drill off the head and pull the plastic off. If there wasn't any exposed bolt at that point, I would have drilled out the center of the bolt and used an EZ-Out bit. (reverse thread catches and removes the screw)

Also you could have taken a dremmel to the head and put a slot in it and used a slot screw driver.

thanks jim!!!!!


and yeah pete, i took out the dremel tool for the bolt on the lower flairing cause i could get to it, and grived a line across it, and cause of its angle and bullshit all i did was fuck it up more, then i went to sears today and bought those EZ-outs, that didnt work too, cause these bolts are hardend i guess, just acted like a big drill bit, then after i posted this i saw jim online and asked him and BAMM! i did it. and got the bolts and washers already ordered and antifreeze in

Congrats on the project.........


EZouts work great , you just have to know how to use them

For future referrence for stripped bolts........ usea drill bit quite a bit smaller then the thread size, and squirt oil on it , the bit will last longer and cut better. It takes the pressure off the threads, and then you can use Crazys idea of a punch and hammer.

Use removable Locktight on all bolts in the future, they will not vibrate out, but wont be impossible to remove either.

Was that a allen bolt head that you stripped or a phillips? If allen head, How did you accomplish that?

This is gonna hurt!
