How can i remove/unscrew a rounded bolt

How can i remove/unscrew the rounded bolt which leads to the plate covering my car's thermostat? Tried to use the rachet, but it's so hard to maneuver within the tight space in which the thermostat is located--plus the bolt is already so rounded. Must remove 2 of these bolts as well.

Clutch installation


Genewrally speaking you need to remove the gear box. UNdo the bolts holding the clutch pressure plate on the flywheel. . Do this by undoing each bolt a few turns at a time. Remove pressure plate and clutch plate. Clean flywheel face. Remove bearing at center of crankshaft and replace as it will be dry and probably rusty. Fit new clutch plate taking care to observe the correct way the plate is fitted. Normally the raised hub section faces away from the flywheel. THis can be checked by pressing the plate against the flywheel and turning it and it it hits the crank bolts you have it in the wrong way round. Fit the pressure plate over the plate and insert the bolts. Some units have 2 or 4 bolts longer than the restand this is to allow the plate to be depressed a fraction to allow the other bolts to screw in. Place a clutch aligning tool through the clutch plate and into the bearing. Evenly retension the pressure plate bolts going alternately across the cover a bit at a time . When retensioned remove the clutch aligning tool. Remove and replace the throw out bearing on the clutch release forks. Ensure that the clutch kit is all new as mixing parts will not work. Refit the gear box. Basically that is the proceedure but to be exact get the manual for your vehicle to cover any extra steps needed for that vehicle.

Thermostat replace


YOOLS U NEED= Basic hand tools will probably do the trick. You may need a rachet and set of sockets.

1

Cut the furnace's power source before beginning. Check for a power switch near your furnace or turn off the electrical power supply at the circuit breaker.

2Turn off the gas supply if you have a gas furnace. Look around the furnace for a black pipe. This pipe is the gas line. Check for a valve located near the pipe. Turn off the gas supply by moving the valve so it's perpendicular to the gas line.

3

Take off the thermostat's old cover by unscrewing the screws that attach the cover to the wall. Some covers don't have screws and simply pull off.

4

Unscrew the mounting plate and notice the wires.
5

Place a small piece of masking tape on each wire. Use a felt-tip marker to mark the masking tape according to the wire's screw terminal location. Usually, the wires are marked with letters.

6

Disconnect the low-voltage wires from the base plate by loosening the screws and then pulling the wires away.
7

Locate the mounting screws for the base plate. Unscrew them and take off the base plate. Guide the base plate over the wires carefully.

2004 pontiac aztek thermostat replacement? overheated today. never done it before. mileage is 64000, 3400 engine


The thermostat is located behind the metal housing that is bolted to the intake manifold on the drivers side of the engine below the throttle body.

There are 2 bolts holding the hosing on. A 13mm swivel socket and a 13mm wrench will be needed to remove the bolts.

Sometimes it is easier to remove the throttle body if it is your first time. It will let you see what you are doing a little better.

1. remove the air cleaner cover and hose attached to the throttle body.
2. remove the throttle body (optional)
3. Using a swivel socket and wrench remove the 2 bolts holding the thermostat housing from the intake manifold.

Where is the thermostat located


Look at the radiator and find the big lead tubes. One of the will lead to the thermostat. You will know which one is the thermo because it will have some bolts that allow the cover that the tube clamps on to, to be removed. Usually on most models the thermostat is on the front of the motor (the front is where the serpentine belt is located). Usually between the heads. Thanks for asking!

TIMING BELT POINTS.


– Mark direction of rotation of toothed belt with coloured felt tip marker pen. – Turn crankshaft to TDC. Mark on toothed belt guard -A- must align with mark on V-belt pulley -B-. – Check position of camshaft pulleys. The larger hole in the locking plates -arrows- must face inwards. hinweis.gif Note If the larger hole in the locking plate is positioned to the outside on the toothed belt pulley, the crankshaft must be turned one revolution in direction of engine rotation. – Remove sealing plug -arrow- from left side of cylinder block. The TDC drilling in the crankshaft must be visible (or able to be felt) in the sealing plug hole. – Screw clamping bolt -3242- carefully into hole onto limit stop so that the crankshaft is secured against turning. – Remove central toothed belt guard. – Unscrew vibration damper. hinweis.gif Note The vibration damper is secured to the crankshaft with 8 bolts. – First remove bolt -1- from oil filter housing, then remove bolts -2- for toothed belt tensioning element cover. – Remove cover. hinweis.gif Note t The toothed belt tensioning element is oil dampened. It can therefore only be pushed back slowly. t Use locking pin -T40011- to lock tensioning element. – If necessary, align holes in housing and on tensioning element piston, before tensioning using long nose pliers or a thin wire. – Turn tensioning lever of toothed belt tensioning roller -1- in -direction of arrow- using hexagon key. – Secure tensioning element with locking pin -T40011- when the tensioning lever of the toothed belt tensioning element -2- has been pushed back so that the holes in the housing and the pistons align. – Seat the camshaft clamp -T40005- into the camshaft locking plates and loosen the securing bolts approx. 5 turns. – Remove camshaft clamp -T40005- again. – Now pull the camshaft pulleys off the tapers using two-arm puller -T40001- and legs -T40001/2-. – Loosen tensioning roller -arrow- and remove toothed belt.
