Strut Pinch Bolt
« on: 23 May 2021, 23:10 »
Hi Guys

Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove the pinch bolt from the strut where it connects onto the hub housing.
The nut Iv'e got off and tried smacking the end of the bolt but its seized solid, tried WD40?

Any ideas will be much appreciated.

Turn the bolt itself to break it loose, if that doesn't do it, try some heat.

Also WD40 isn't penetrating oil, it's a water dispersant, get some of the real stuff.  :smiley:
