    Seized up bolt

    Post  aznsniper305 on Fri Mar 13, 2009 7:08 pm

    Man do i have a problem. so here goes. on the throttle body there are 4 allen key bolt that hold the throttle body onto the upper plenum. well right now i cant remove my throttle body to finish putting on my iso thermal gasket that came with my plenum spacer. This is all because one of my allen key bolts is like rounded out and i did the whole put the groove into it to try to fit a flat tip in there but that didnt work either it was like slowly scraping the metal off.

    i have no idea what im going to need to do.
    im not gonna work with it till i get back to fayetteville. so giving a heads up. unless someone knows how we can remove it.

    Chan if you can fit some vice grips on the bolt head that might work, I don't know how much room you have to work with though.
