2002 Wrangler gas tank skid plate bolt problem
I have a 2002 Wrangler Sport with a bad fuel pump. I sprayed all the bolts with crc. The front bolts were very rusted. When trying to unbolt the front gas tank skid plate bolts in order to lower the tank, two of these bolts broke loose at the top (apparently the CRC didn't work). They just spin in place. Are these carriage bolts that sit in a seat or hex bolts and also, any suggestions at all on how to get these bolts out. Thanks!
I'd have to go out and look at how much room you have to work, but maybe you could cut the nuts off with a dremel. Or if you could hold the nut to keep it from spinning maybe you could drill the bolt. Once its loose the bolt comes right out over the top of the bracket. I replaced mine with new hardware when I did Savvy skid.
Romney in 2020!
