before a beer or two i was ready to get the grinder out and forcibly remove this dam thing!

i have the forward bolt off no problem, the rear bolt is my issue,
the nut just keeps spinning in either direction it wont actually move on the thread!

trying to remove the bolt spins the nut but wont move on the thread,
trying to remove the nut spins the bolt but wont move on the thread!

yes i have a ratchet on both the nut and bolt, they are not free spinning, the bit above is just the logic.


since i found an old photo when i had it off last time the new paint job looks quite nice Big grin another coat if i can get it off.

Become stronger or get a big bar

Sorry bit confused is it that you just cant undo it or is it sheared inside

If sheared force a screwdriver between the washer n nut the get a spanner on an un twist

You could try a nut splitter if you can get one in assuming you've stripped the thread.

Get a spanner on the top and a socket with a long bar on the bottom.

Turn from the bottom until the spanner wedges against something and then continue to apply force to the bar to undo.

If the nut threads are stripped to such a degree that it won't loosen and just spins, then just chop it off as suggested.

    mocinim - i believe it is shredded and i doubt i will fit anything between anything, too tight.

    long bars and wedging spanners all done the nut just keeps spinning in place which is the annoying part as it does apply force to the bolt just wont catch the thread.

    Nut splitter or grinder it is Big grin i'm feeling nut splitter, add a tool to my small collection,
    and it will make for some good jokes at the local.

    welshpug! - when you say cut the bolt i assume cut the nut off the bolt?

    tried to get a nut splitter but they only go to tensile strength 6 and the nut is the same as the bolt 10.9?

    i'm not too keen to get under the car and grind upside down any tips?

    You could have that off in a couple of minutes with even just a near blunt hacksaw.

    Yeah, get your wallet out and pay someone with some balls.

    I spent several months under the Rallye with a wire brush on a grinder inches from my face. Removing a single nut/bolt is gonna take less than 10s.

    If you worried about cutting the subframe cut through the nut close to all the way then go in with the hacksaw or nut splitter to avoid damage

    Before you begin go to the shop get some snickers (get some nuts)
