Stripped seat bolts
Hi, i was wondering if anyone knew on how to removea slightly stripped seat
bolt. The bolt isnt completely stripped, just a little rounded. i got it out half way,
but by ratchet just keeps riding off of it. I'm also trying to avoid using an easy
out as well, but if i have to, i'll do it. Just looking for suggestions, thanks!
try spraying it and working it back tight then loose.
You should have used some heat and maybe some penetrating fluid to help remove it. So your saying the inside of the bolt is all messed up that the T50 won't stay in? Do you have access to turn it with a Vise-Grip?
I was using i think a 14 mm socket, the bolt was also being very stubborn, but it came out a little, i sprayed them with penetrating oil when i left.
Oldstorqnpower, what kind of socket is that????
Sometimes you can file two flats on the head which will give you the grip you need to remove the bolt.
heat on a seat bolt?? get the fire extinguisher
I'll go out and buy some turbo sockets, i heard they're good for removing stripped bolts.
awesome, ill give it a try. thanks!!
