Default Re: Suggestions for removing seized cover bolts??

i've had to drill the heads off and pull the rest out with vicegrips. just get a drill bit a little bigger than the bolt ( the threaded part, not the head) and drill into it until the head pops off.

there's a lot of threads left to get a good grip with some vice grips, or half the time you can unscrew them by hand once the cover's off.

then replace them with some allen bolts (technically " socket cap screws.")
