Default Stuck Turbo Stud....Solution!

I've been working on removing a turbo stud from my friend Marc's (KiddWRX03) car all day.



I think I've gone through half of a can of this stuff already, and now I have....

Well the nut that was on the STRIPPED stud wouldn't come off, and it broke the stud...so it got the PB blaster / vice grip therapy. Finally got that SOB off and put two nuts together on the new stud and reinstalled. I'm going for a test drive now!

Took over 2 hours....and a call or 2 to Kienan at All Aspects for moral support. My right hand has a big red mark from trying to clamp on the vise grips so many times.

If anyone has this problem in the future, a pipe wrench works much better than vice grips. If you have enough space to get the wrench around the stud, it will not slip as it clamps tighter as you put pressure on it. Works like a charm.

?? So, you thread to nuts next to each other, then use the nuts as leverage (like a socket or crescent wrench)?

I don't have the part number, but you can get it at your stealership. They should know what you are asking for.

Go to your local dealer, give then your vinh and they should be able to pull it up. Parts people get kinda pissy over the phone so you might wanna go in person. Call andrewtech im sure they have one in stock or atleast give you the part #
