This is on my 320I. The bolt is seiezed and I have all ready broken the Factory wrench and 3 of my own sockets. I tried an impact and it totaly striped the bolt. I dont think an Easy out is going to work because of how tight the Bolt is in. Any Ideas on how the hell im Going to get it out? I need to get it out so I can fix my suspesion, Something is really lose and therefor the car is not drivable.

Please help

...Sawzall! Or Oxide drill it out, then replace w/ new.

Replacing alternator bushings (totally gone) ran

into completely frozen (top) 13mm bolt. I was

moving everything out of the way to get on top of it.

The box wrench was starting to strip it, so I put it all

back together to go see my bud w. the air tool to

pop it off. Fingers crossed, but prepared for the

worst.

S T R I P P E D ain't a party movie.

Good luck dude,

ps, I soaked it in everything! crazy resource would

be to grind-notch it, then use a smaller size box bit.

strictly for the guerilla-stance!

a small drill bit, then a bigger one and so on. It works fine just take your time.
