good luck with that. it might be a easier option to use a bolt extractor and use new bolts with the new hinges.

I'm VERY lucky my new hinges came with new hardware. I probably wouldn't have even attempted to take the old ones off unless I had new hardware. New hinges are pretty nice. Black powdercoated stainless steel. Looks alot more rugged than the stock ones.

Did you drill the screw out?? I'm really afraid to do that. Don't want to strip the receptacle.

my advice on the screw (i see these by the dozen daily at work) is use a smaller drill bit than the diameter of the threads, then use a screw extractor ($5 autozone) and all you do is stick the screw extractor in the hole you drilled, and tap it with a hammer lightly while turning it to the left, and bam out comes the screw.....you have to tap it to get the revese teeth to bite the insides good

This weekend I installed a set of Skid Row mirror relocator brackets and replaced a faulty radiator with a CSF 3-core unit.
