Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
I was trying to get the pinch bolt off of my rear coil spring so I could replace the whole spring/strut assembly and it broke.i have tried drilling it out but to no avail.what can i do now?
1. You can replace the spindle = Expensive
2. You can use a small drill bit (cobalt) and drill though enough to use an extractor to remove the offending piece.
Suggestions to help might be to use a little PB Blaster and or heat on the bolt before trying to remove the offending piece before you attempt to remove it with an extractor. Take your time as you will most likely get only one chance to get it out.
Extractor sets are pretty cheap at Harbor Freight if you have one near you. You can insert the extractor from either side in the bolt hole.
