SOURCE: 1989 Toyota 4x4 22re? 6mm hex bolt missing from thermostat housing, could that cause water to leak into the head?

I do not see how that could possible leak into the head unless you had a crack in the area that the water was leaking. It would at least not be because of the bolt missing.

Tip

How to remove a broken bolt the easy way...


Say you have snapped the head off a rusty bolt on the car, its infuriating!

But, there is a fantastic tip from a mechanical engineer that works every time, and is easy to do!

Lets assume the bolt is a 10mm exhaust stud or similar, take a 4mm drill bit (sharp one) and a 4mm hex (allen) key, (especially a t-bar type or socket mounted one) - drill a pilot hole right down into the bolt with the 4mm drill, as far as you can without snapping the drill bit in the bolt!!! Use light pressure, a sharp drill bit and let the drill do the work, and keep it straight....then when you pull the drill out, tap the hex key into the hole you made with a hammer, get it in as far as you can, it will be a tight fit as the 4mm hex key measures 4mm from flat to flat across it, and the corners of each flat are slightly more than that so it bites very well into the bolt, spray plenty of release fluid or wd40 around the exposed bolt thread to help loosen it, leave for 10 minutes if rusty, then turn the hex key with either a socket and wrench or the t-handle on it, and it will turn the bolt without slipping!

And hex keys are VERY VERY strong, much stronger than a bolt as they are tempered high tensile steel - the bolt will unscrew with ease! Forget useless screw and bolt extractors! And simply pick a drill size that gives a decent hole leaving some metal at the sides of the bolt but not too small a size, and keep the hex key to the same size in mm as the drill you use, if you made a mistake just go up a size or 2 on both drill bit and hex key and you get another try, but should not need it!

What kind of Allen wrench do you use to take off the bottom bolt holding the alternator on a Suzuki L7?


Should be a T50 torx head on the lower bolt. If you get it out, consider swapping it with a hex head as history has proven that particular bolt to strip out when trying to remove it.

How do i remove and replace the c.v. axles in my 2004 audi outie


With a little difficulty. Google online for the video, but I'd have to know your exact car model, A4, A6, A8, whatever.

Why are you replacing the CV axle assembly? Most of the time all you have to do is replace the outer joint (rzeppa) or clean it and replace the boot. Rarely does the inner joint fail unless the boot has been gone for awhile and dirt/water has contaminated and the grease has gone.

The general procedure is to break loose the axle bolt in the center of the wheel before you take the wheel off with the car on the ground. You'll need a 17mm or so socket hex key or a socket that fits the hex head on the bolt. You should get a new axle bolt with the new CV joint..I prefer the socket head cap screw type because the socket hex key doesn't slip out as easy as a socket will slip off a hex head bolt.

If you don't understand the difference between a socket hex key, socket, hex head cap screw or socket head cap screw look it up on google.

Then jack the car, remove the wheel, remove the axle bolt. Do NOT put the car on the ground without the axle bolt in there!

There is a pinch bolt above the hub on the axle carrier..remove the pinch bolt and you may have to remove the tie rod end from the carrier. You may have to remove the sway bar link from the axle carrier as well...just disconnect it from the sway bar.

Swing the carrier out while holding the axle in towards the transmission. If the rzeppa joint is frozen into the hub you can screw the axle bolt almost all the way in but ½" out, then rap the bolt with a BF hammer/hand sledge until it moves...then back out the axle bolt as necessary, rap it again if it still sticks, until you can get the joint free from the carrier.

Now you have to remove the axle assembly from the transmission output flange...you'll need a 10mm triple square tool here and it's a lot easier with an impact wrench. It's not a torx or an allen socket, there are 12 points on the female socket head bolt.

Get the old axle assembly out, put the new one in, install the triple square bolts to the proper torque (look it up....there are two sizes bolts and the torque is different), put the rzeppa joint into the hub and run the axle bolt finger tight, hook up the pinch bolt (you need a new one and nut) as well as the TRE (don't mess with the top bolt...it adjusts bump steer and if you change it you need to do an alignment) pinch bolt, the tighten the axle bolt to something like 90-140 ft lbs (varies upon size of axle nut...look it up or buy a bentley service manual), put the wheel back on and lower the car. The axle bolt is then tightened an additional 180 degrees with the wheel on the ground...you'll need a breaker bar with a 4-foot cheater pipe unless you're the incredible hulk. I use a ¾" drive breaker bar..it doesn't bend with the cheater pipe.

Hook up the sway bar and you're done.

There are a few critical torque values that I don't have because I don't know what audi you're working on, but you really need to invest in a Bentley service manual for your car.

I just bought a used 1991 Pontiac Grand Am which has a 4 Tech 2.5 liter engine. I took the car to a shop to have the oil changed and was told that there is a "cylinder" or "canister"...


To remove the bolt with the rounded head I would try cutting a slot in the top of the bolt head. Cut the slot to fit the largest straight tip screwdriver that you can find. then use a pair of pliers or vise grips to grip the shaft of the screwdriver to put more torque on the screwdriver (it helps if the screwdriver has a square shaft. If you think that the bolt is too seized into the engine block to try that, another thing to try is to weld another bolt to the head of the original bolt, (I would use a wire feed welder) so that you have an undamaged bolt head to use a wrench on (preferably a strong socket wrench). If you do weld another bolt onto the original bolt, make sure that you let the bolt cool down completely because when you get the bolt hot, it will expand and will not break loose until it has cooled. Have a fire extinguisher handy and good luck. Hope this helps.

Kia Door Handle


Remove the door trim inside by loosen 3 bolt with screw driver, then pull out the door trim, after that loosen the hex.bolt (3 hex-bolt) on lock mechanism bracket, after that you can loose bolt (4 hex bolt) on handle cover. Be careful to not drop the bolt, because the gap on sliding door is too narrow. After you removing the handle assembly you can see where is the broken. You can remove the handle from cover by removing pin clips on it. To fixing the broken handle you can just using plastic glue or you can drill a small hole and put some small wire to reinforce the plastic.
