Can't get the bolt to budge laterally, will spin when wrenched, bushings and all. Any suggestions for extraction that leaves the bushes intact would be appreciated.

Its a complete E30 80A unit, bracket and all.

Thanks

try wedging a screwdriver between the bracket and the block and maintain pressure against the bracket while trying to back the bolt out. If the threads aren't stripped too badly (and you're lucky)the bolt threads will catch and you can back it out.

Cheers and good luck

Mike
