Ive got this problem too- All but two bolts I was able to get out- of course the two I cant get out are right near the exhaust pipe- I applied heat but to no avail- I tried the sockets from Sears, and it seems like they are the size right between the two smaller ones- No go- I cant get vice grips on there either- So ive been slowly heating and tearing pieces of pan off from around the bolt but dont know if that will work-
How long is it safe to heat the bolts- my pan is rotted thru like crazy so theres no going back-
Think I could just cut the "free" part of the pan off with a dremel to give me more room to try and get vice grips on the two bolts that are left?
I swear it looks like the P/O must have welded these bolts on or something- thats how bad it looks- Ill take a pic later and post it if it would help-
Any ideas guys?
