2002 V6. I stripped the bolt. Apparently the dealership mechanic tightened it way too much. The bolt is currently almost rounded due to the frustration mixed with the humidity of the day and the nagging of the ex. How do i get it out now? Any recommendations? Thanks
You will need an "easy out" bit. This is desined to drill into the bolt and grab it and hopefully back it out. Good luck and patience will be needed as well as some wd40 etc. Good luck. Also buy a quality easy bit,nothing cheap.
License and registration please.

Then once you get the bolt out - buy a new one!!! :kooky: Don't want this to happen again...
