Personally, I love when I have stuck bolts. It gives me an opportunity to exert my dominance over the car.

You do what you can when you are crawling under a car with oil dripping in your eyes.

You obviously have not tried to take out a seat that was installed 20 years ago by a gorilla. I've broken more than one socket extension on those. When someone strips it round it makes it 10x harder.

This is my experience. I love when I break off a hardened bit in the middle of a bolt when trying to drill it out. The damn bit is harder than the bolt itself, and that makes it twice as fun to remove. No chance to re-drill it after it breaks. Of course this process also gives me a chance to practice my throwing, cussing and angry stomping skills, when I throw the nearest tool as hard and far as I can into the back yard while cussing and jumping around like a crazy person.

Or when you try to drill out head studs, the hardened bit breaks off in the broken stud. Try again, now theres 2 broken bits in the broken stud....

Welding on bolts instead of nuts usually gives more to work with as well.

Actually I have and I take out fasteners from 6in/lbs to 5500ft lbs. I am well aware about overtorque of fasters. I am just saying that there are many methods to get fasteners out.

Slotting the heads
Filing the sides
Impact
Lubrication
Heat
Wax

I can do this all day. I am not trying to argue but its all about personal preference. Do what works for you..

But it's a gay Miata *****, and prefers other gay penises. Face it, a Ford Focus is more manly.

You were arguing. I did what worked for me and you jumped in and told me I was a dumb *** that should have gone to Snap On <G>. My MIG sits in the corner and is a royal pain to get out and setup for one small weld. Trust me, I didn't weld that other bolt on there because I was too lazy to get out the the bolt removers or vice grips. If there were a better way than setting my Miata on fire three times (welder, PB-Blaster and 20 year old dried out carpet) I would have used it. Simply slotting the head might work for you and the thousands of 5500ft lbs bolts that you take off at work every day but it would have never worked on this particular bolt.

You too? Do the neighbours avoid you for a couple days after as well?

OP I employ that bolt removal technique as well, "proper remover tools" are often much less reliable, not to mention fragile.

Are you easily offended because I offered a suggestion like others or that I am new to the forum. I did what everyone else did and offered up an alternative,thats it. I asked about extractors cause everytime someone pulls one out its the 3 inch pieces of crap and some people havent seen the stubby ones. So Id apologize if I was out of line but I wasnt, so I wont.

My point was to use quality tight fitting tools to begin with. Of coarse I know you know that. I was being sarcastic.

I have never had problems removing seat bolts before. Maybe it is because of my awsome Snap On sockets. (More Sarcasm)

Can you please give some more information on the stubby extractors? I've never seen them before. Linkasaurus please?

You can get them from Matco and Snap-0n for sure. The come in 10pack sizes and then the large set I posted on the last page. Like I said I have taken out some beefy bolts with them and never have an issue.

You want part # SEXS10
