Unable to get body mount bolts out to install nerf bars

Bolts loosen and come down so far but then they just rachet.the bolt goes back and tightens,but it will not come all the way out when you try to remove it.All it does is spin and make a rachet sound. I have done this job before on older dodge and had no problem.Is there something different on the ends of these bolts ?

I ran into the same problem with my running boards. They have a wing nut inside the frame. The only way I got them off was to loosen them so much and then jump on the running boards. But I did shove a screwdriver into the hole to stop the wing nut from turning. The other one I had a friend go at it with a pneumatic socket.

For your vehicle, there is already available the pulley with the bearing for about $13 at AutoZone.

How do you install Smittybilt Nerf Bars on a 1984 Ford Bronco? Does the rear of the Nerf Bar bolt to the back leaf spring and does the front bolt to the frame?


You're going to want to take that nerf bar, attach it to the spring leaf with the front bolt and frame as you say. Put some inhibitor behind the unit too. After flexing the torque rod for a while, move the rear axle upward by jacking underneath it. From there you should find that the whole thing just slips into place.

Can't get the 2 top bolts out of my 1994 s10 blazer to replace the transmission. Help!


You may need to lift the body to get to them. I would loosen all of the body bolts and lift it just enough to get a swivel socket to them,

How do you adjust tension for drive belt


first you need to figure out if you have an automatic tensioner or an adjustable one. so look at the pullies which ones are not accesories (ie not an alternator pully, power steering.) some pullies will just be on there own not driving anything. is this pully connected to something like this O>o <--this end is the pully.
pully mounting bolt ^ ^arm with hole for rachet
or does it look like the pully is attached to a threaded pole.

the auto adjuster need a rachet to pull back on it (because it's spring loaded) while you install the new belt.

the other need the nut on the pully loosened and the threaded pole loosened will move the pully removing tension from the belt (opposite will tension the new belt).

tighten belt until you can only twist it in half.

I need to remove my starter on my 98 Diamante but I can not see all mounting bolts and I need to know where the bolts are located.


Hi, I am assuming you know where starter is. If you have found bottom bolt #14 metric socket which to reach you "must" use a medium length extention and go into it right above manifold pipe to reach it. I found if you take the guard off the starter 3 small hex head screws, it is much easier to get at all bolts (2). Whats strange is the lower bolt on starter mounts from the front and the "TOP" bolt #14 has to be reached from the rear of starter. You can not see the top bolt from bottom or top, but if you use your hand and reach up aroung the back of starter you can feel it! It took 2 of us one reaching up from bottom with just #14 deep well socket (no extention) on the rachet and feeling where to place it with rachet facing up, and person over top of engine reaching down helping to align socket on bolt, then use a piece of pipe or ? From the top place pipe extension on end of rachet and bolt will easily.
break loose. Good Luck it sounds hard but is fairly easy with right tools. kasheyboy77
