Default What is this bolt in jack plate?

I'm trying to install a skid plate and have some issues with a bolt in the center of the jack plate behind the oil pan (which is where the skid plate is supposed to bolt into).

Part:

I'm not sure what used to be here, if this is a broken bolt, or what.

It's the middle hole in the raised area of the jackplate.



What it looks like from the top side (single nut on bottom):



Any ideas? I can remove the jackplate entirely, but those bolts haven't been touched in 9 years and I'm not looking forward to that.

It's a captive nut welded to the plate. Your bolt has probably broken and what's left is in the whole.

The jackplate bolts are larger and less likely to snap when you remove it.

Thanks. I guess I'll take it to a shop and pay a mechanic to knock it off for me, since 30 min of their time is probably better spent than 8+ hours of my time.

I had to tap that hole on my 09 Impreza when i installed the skid plate. The hole was so rusted but my harbor freight tap still holds years later. I'd be interested to see whats bolted there on my 12 wrx because the hole was unused on my impreza or so i thought.
