exhaust hanger bolts

I posted a few weeks ago about the rear passenger side hanger bolts possibly being galled. Some others have had the same issue. I was wondering if removing the rear bumper cover will allow access to that bolt so I can fix/replace it. Does anyone know?? You can't access it from the trunk. There must be a way and it looks like that may be it.
The bolt is not clamped and it buzzes at certain rpm. Plus I can't adjust the mufflers enough to even them up. BTW, it is both bolts that are galled - the horizontal one and the vertical one.

Thanks
Don

Not sure I follow. Why would you need to pull the bumper cover to access the bolts? The vertical is easily accessed from underneath. The horizontal is tougher but you can get it with an open end wrench (and a little hand skin)

because

The vertical bolt still turns with the nut-it is galled. But it is not clamped. The bolt is tight in the nut but the hanger is still loose. The threads must be hosed and I need to remove it but I can't because it all turns but does not come loose. The bolt must screw into a tabbed or spot welded nut and the threads have galled and the nut turns.
Did I do a better job explaining? I already changed the mufflers-Violators-that's when it happened. Sorry I didn't mention that.

Sorry... Been away... Not sure how you're going to get to those. On my car, the bolts just screw directly into the frame, there are no nuts, the frame is just tapped. You may have to have them drilled and retapped.

thanks

I was hoping for some good news. I figured with all the muffler replacements that someone had already been thru this.
The vertical one doesn't appear to to be threaded into the chassis. The horizontal one probably is. Well, the weather is getting nicer so I'll se what I can find out.
Bummer

oops

After a better look ,I think you're right. Even the vertical bolt is threaded into the frame, which is OK for me. That makes it easier to repair.
Thanks STL. I have to pull the mufflers anyway to bend the hanger rods for better positioning. They is vewy cwooked.
