Hello all. I was trying to install my short shifter kit on my 2001 and I couldn't get the bolt in the bolt in the picture undone! Any hints?
Thank you!http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14/09/17/b017446d00926882b296e98ef3b630a4.jpg

Thread penetrator, a bigger wrench, and hope it doesn't strip. Pretty sure that bolt is loctited in.

If you still can't break it free try a pen torch to swell the metal then spray with pb blaster or something similar.

I had same problem. Make sure to buy a new bolt when you put it back together. Its an actual bolt now not some stupid torx. also make sure you did alignment marks right where that bolt is.

It's just an ebay one. Just to see if it's any good

Mine were easy to break loose with a 3/8 ratchet. Are you trying to use an allen wrench or something?
