Removing cab from 2003 ford ranger. three of the biscuits turn.
I have removed three of the six cab to frame retaining bolts. The three remaining have the biscuits broken free and will not allow me to remove the bolts. the metal at the base of the biscuit assys have a couple of notches or flat sides. This appears to be a location for a tool of some type to retain the biscuit in order to remove the bolt. Is this true? Can i find a tool to retain the biscuit?
