Crossmember bolts stripped
Something's been making a fair amount of noise in my clutch, and it's about time to change it out anyway, so I was going to try to drop the tranny last weekend.
But when trying to get the crossmember off, I ended up stripping a few of the bolts. It's been years since they've come off, so I'm sure they're completely rusted out.
They were extremely stiff, but only a few came out. 2 stripped and I broke the head off another. I was trying to do it as gently as possible, but now I'm afraid I'm screwed.
How do you suppose I get 'em out, and what should I do about re-tapping and replacement?
