Fixing stripped CVT cover nut
What is the best way to remove a bolt that is stuck in the CVT cover?? The one at the 6oclock position is stuck and is spinning the insert.
Thanks in advance.
Had this same problem on the lower rear most bolt. Didn't want to through bolt it because that would necessitate skid plate removal to pull the cover.
Once I got the original insert out, used a long bolt with some needle nose vise grips on it and spun a 6m nut onto it. With a water soaked rag handy, used butane torch to heat the nut up almost red hot. Pulled it into the cover and immediately hit it with the cold water. Seems to have embedded itself in there quite nicely.
