Default What would you do....

If you were removing the last bolt off your pinion housing to split it from the carrier and the top-half of the bolt snapped off. I can't drill into it....Guess I need to take it to a shop? Any other recomendations?

My friend and I were fixing a latch on my HT. All 3 bolts stripped, squaring them for use with a socket = more stripped, BFscrewdriver = another one stripped, drilling them out = broken bit, extractor set=broke off extractor inside.

Carbide bit= got 1 out, made enough room to cross thread another bolt in, and make a small hole in the HT.

I feel you.

Pitlab I couldn't get the latches off of my hardtop either, one came off just fine and I stipped all the bolts on the the other side, pissed me off. It's still like that haha.

We all have different methods, and every situation seems to be different...

I'd suggest the mig/tig and bigger nut approach, but I'm lazy...
