I know, it's a bear, once the grill is a few years old. Aside from that, you'd expect the R & D Dept to come up with a better way to attach the 'U' shaped burners, for a grill that is one of the most expensive ones on the market.

In any event, I found that if the screw heads are badly rusted, using an easy out or drilling the screw out, is about the only way to do it. If you drill it out, start with a small diameter bit and work your way up. Of course, you'll have to use a little larger diameter sheet metal screw to attach the new burner(s). I highly recommend Stainless Steel Screws, in case you ever have to replace the burners again.

Hope this helped you get them out. Please let me know and Happy grilling!!

How do I replace the ignition switch on my 74 MGB


After removing the column covers, (screws in holes underneath) The 2 unslotted studs holding the ignition and steering lock assembly onto the column are anti-theft screws. They will turn by hitting them on the edges with a hammer and small sharp chisel - counter clockwise.

How to remove ignition cylinder without key


Hi MCC, You will need to remove the plastic cowling from around the steering column by removing the screws from its underside. Tilt the steering wheel down (if fitted with adjustment) and remove the cowling covers. Disconnect the electrical sockets and then with a cold chisel knock out the four blind bolts. Once the blind bolts are removed the switch and barrel will be easy to remove, unless the lock has activated, in which case a little force may be required to remove the release the locking tongue. However if you can get a good locksmith, who knows the job, a replacement key can be made without removing the barrel. Regards and happy new year, John

Law mower screw stripped and blade can't be removed


this can be a real pain in the rear to deal with...are you sure you want all the drama?...find a way to bind the blade so that it won't rotate at all.....now get a pair of vice grips on that nut and try to loosen it......if the threads itself on the threads are stripped as you described, then you'll have to drill out the screw....meaning you'll have to find dead center and mark it with a heavy duty punch, then use a cobalt drill....1/8th inch to start with, then get a slightly larger bit.....at some point you should be able to chisel the head off the bolt and remove the blade.....now you'll have to easy-out the stripped screw from there......once the stripped screw is out....you'll have to determine whether there is enuf material left to drill and tap to a larger diameter bolt/screw.OPTION 2..you may be able to get a puller from the auto parts store.....but you could ruin the threads even worse than the condition they're in now.OPTION 3....get a good grip on the bolt head with vice grips, then get a buddy to tap a cold chisel horizontally between the bolt head and the blade, tapping easy while you pull up counter clockwise on the vise grips and see if the bolt screw head starts to back out at all.....if you may no progressOPTION 4.....if you have the room to do it...hacksaw the head of the bolt off, remove blade, now try to remove the screw with an easy-outand drilling good luck with this one.
please post back what you tried and results

Trying to take negative clamp off battery, pos came off easy. seems to turn after i took the bolt off but just will not open enough to release off the battery. any ideas?


using a screw driver or chisel, find the small line where the battery clamp is joined in half. Put the screw driver or chisel on this line and strike with a hammer firmly. This will spread the clamp out. Also soak it in CRC or similar. You can also use the screw driver as a lever underneath the clamp. Ensure the positive lead is well away from where you are working. It is a good idea to wrap both the positive lead and positive terminal in masking tape to prevent any arcing out.

Replace ignition switch


REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVERING FROM THE STEERING COLUMN UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. YOU PROBABLY WON'T HAVE TO REMOVE THE WHEEL. THERE SHOULD BE SCREWS ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF THE PLASTIC PIECES . THE SCREWS THAT HOLD THE IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER IN PLACE MAY HAVE SECURITY HEADS, [ROUND , NO SLOTS OR HEXES] YOU WILL NEED A SMALL CHISEL & A SMALL HAMMER TO START THEM TURNING.

IF YOU ONLY WANT TO REPLACE THE ELECTRICAL PART, " THE BLACK PLASTIC WITH THE WIRES " ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS REMOVE THE SINGLE SCREW FROM THE OPPOSITE END WHERE THE KEYS GO & PULL OUT THE PLASTIC SWITCH.

Trying to replace ignition, trying to remove the old ignition.


This is not hard to do, first remove all the steering column plastic, then you'll see two bolts with no heads on them. Take a chisel and a hammer and loosen the bolts, counterclockwise. Install the same way except the new lock assembly will have reverse hex screws you torque down until the heads break off. good luck.
