    Need help... Street Shield Install

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey Guys
    Plan was to change oil and install street sheild. Oil went well as usual but can not install street shield because my M10 Triple square bolts holding the power steering shield are completely shaved... guess the consequences of being low. Anyhow any suggestion on how the hell to get these out? Note: I tried easy out and no way that is going to work.

    All suggestions or crazy ideas are welcome.

    - Brian

    Did you try easy out in a screw not pictured here? Because the screw head would have to be perfectly cleaned out and the proper size hole drilled into it so you can use your extractor.

    Mac, itís not that easy out wouldnít have worked. The problem is I canít get the car high enough off the ground to get drill and bit to fit under the car to drive it straight in. I should have been more specific.

    Hey sick s4 I was in similar situations before, I installed ecs street shields for pan and tran....

    Try to break the tension of that bolt with a needle nose or locking pliers they work best
    or
    Use a small screw driver with the extractor bit on the end, if you're really desperate

    just brainstorming...

    Keep it simple, use a chisel and a hammer.
