HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

cross member broken bolt

Post  Tehone on Sun May 15, 2011 10:31 pm

Have a challenge any suggestions. After 20+ years I had a cross-member bolt refuse to let go and stayed in the frame rail Sad .

I was thinking after removing all the wiring, lines, and other items I would cut a window in the side of the frame rail (smudge mark area) to get to the top of the bolt and give it a good soak and try a stud remover if enough is protruding. Any other thoughts.

You could just drill it out and try and re-tap for the same size or drill and re-tap larger and run a larger bolt.

Buy a good 12mm (or whatever size thats closest to the inner diameter of that hole) drill bit and get the bolt to concave a bit. The inner diameter of the bung/spacer (or whatever that thing is called) will act as a guide for the drill bit.

Once it has concavity, you can use a small [~1/4"] drill bit to start a pilot hole and then work your way up to whatever extractor size youre using.

Since its kinda vague...I made a pictar.... yes the arrow and bit orientation is wrong....its late. Laughing

That's what I would try first! Try to drill straight so if need be be able to drill to bolt size till you get to nut. That removes cross-member at least and hopefully you can run tap and end up with original threads.
