if you drill a small hole in the centre of the sheerd bolt you will be able to get it out with a correctly sized easy out

Looks like an engine/gearbox mount? As above...drill it out and replace the bolt, should be no lasting damage at all Smile

^^ Yeah man, always.

I drilled it out to the best of my abbility andhelliocoiled it. the new bolt has 14 good rotations on it. which should be enough.

Now i just need to fit my new whiteline arb which is turning out to be a pain in the bottom!! Crying or Very sad

correct..

however i gave it the guns the other day testing out my arb's on some bends and since then when moving off from stationary in 1st theres a metalic rattle.. the bolts still in, and tight, im concerned as to what it is as immediatly it occoured to me that its probably that bolt

will be at the meet this weekend asking as many people as possible what they reckon haha
