Default Help w/ stripped motor mount bolt.....

I just wanted to know if there was a socket that was made to get out stripped nuts? I accidentally (whoops) stripped the nut that mounts the engine to the subframe.....

I know there is a way to get this off. Any ideas?

see if you can pound on the 13mm socket or an SAE size that is JUST a hare smaller then the 14mm, which IIRC would be like 9/16"

I'll have to give that a try, but if not, what are these specialty sockets called? anything? or should I just go ask someone at a hardware store.

Dremel will take forever and its hard to get at, if you slip, bye bye power steering!
plus, you will have to replace the stud in the motor mount.

Go to sears, and buy a stripped nut remover.

This sounds like what I did. On my drivers side I stripped the head of the bolt closest to the firewall. I took a cold chisel and cut a V into the head of the bolt and tapped her on around. I bought one of those kits(bolt/screw extractor from Sears) and there just wasn't enough working room in that area. Now if it had been on the passenger side I would have been fine.

Buster

Doh I miss read, didnt realize it was the nut on the motor mount you were speaking of.

Garret -
I just stripped my passenger side motor mount nut installing my uppipe. How did you end up getting the nut off?

I've heard use 13mm, dremel, or sears nut-tool thingy. Which did you try, or did you come up with something better?

Thanks,
Chad

Sears Bolt-out™ Stripped bolt/nut remover set #1

Set #2

I now swear by these things, $20 for 5 of them, and I got the "add on" set (set2 above) for $20.... available at any sears. You'll thank me later

Yes, but it would take a very confident man to walk into a sears store and ask for a "nut-tool thingy."
