Help!: Stubborn Torx Bolt in ORF Cage
I figured you guys in the Fab section have run into this problem a lot...
"Off Road Fabrication" has a 'nice' bolt-on sport cage for the cab, sure, but in the process of installing it I ended up breaking a torx bolt...sort of...on the windshield mount where the stock bars join the central roll cage with the 2 torx bolts that bolt into the winshield.
The head is not stripped, and it swivels around loosely, but it cannot, I mean CANNOT seem to be wrenched out of the hole. When I reverse it out of the hole, the thread seems to catch on something, get stuck, and then go loose again. I probably overtightened it by accident, causing some sort of damage. I tried to pry on it upwards with a flathead screwdriver while reversing it, but that failed. Should I drill it out? I mean, should I hold a vice clamp on it and drill it out? Will that work? Are they hardened steel bolts? Or is there something I don't know?
It's my DD and it's really getting my PO'd.
