Im trying to get out my back seats to flip the hook and make it able to fold down. Thisway I can add some amps back there and dynamat. Only problem is the darned things wont come out. My bolts are rusted in. I tried a crecent wrench and it just opens up. tried sockets but they slip. Tried pounding on it to break it free but nothing works.
help :WHT:
Thanks

Sounds like you need the sawzall.. :crazy:
really tho, if they don't come out like that, try taking the sawzall and cutting a groove deep in the bolt head, making it a big slotted screw head.???
try PB Blaster first, they have it at auto parts stores, it will free up anything.
Hope some of that helps/ :dunno: :dunno:

definately soak the hell out of them with pb blaster. spray them from the bottom of the truck too, they go right through to the underside. an impact gun will definately help you out too. using a box end wrench or a 6 point socket will be much better than a cresent or 12point. dont be afraid to add a pipe to the ratchet if you use a socket.

That would help... also buy one of those sockets with all the pins in them that will form over the bolt head. Then get a good sturdy ratchet and a good length of bar to slide over it for extra leverage.

Mine were pretty tough. I couldn't use a regular ratchet to get it loose so I used my 18" breaker bar with a 6 point socket and they came right out. It's all about leverage.

Mine gave me a little trouble, but eventually came right out. I added a little oil to them before I put them back in. Should make it easier next time.

My vote in your case is an impact wrench, or breaker bar. You can get it.

Oiling the threads is a temporary solution.
The oil dries out and then.................back to square 1.
Put on the threads some anti-seize compound such as copperslip.
This will stray on for years and help on the removal of the bolts next time you need them out.
