Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 1500
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.
