Tip & How-To about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
If you are about to venture into the daunting task of breaking loose an old rusted bolt or one you know has Loctite applied to it, try this.
Before trying to loosen bolt in the normal direction it takes to get loose (some are reversed threads) try tightening it slightly. This will usually clean a "pathway" for the threads. Then, just turn it out as normal. You may want to turn it back and forth along the way to really clean out threads and increase your success for complete removal.
