this happened to me, i took off all the ones that i could and stuck a flathead screwdriver under the valve cover to put pressure on the stripped nut and then i jammed a smaller flathead under the stripped nut and loosened it slowly with a socket until it came off.
yup yup i still have to go get the stud and nut, can you by them individually and how much did it cost you?Do this when it strips.
When you get it off, go to honda and get the replacement studs that screw into the head (make sure you know if you need a long stud or a short stud), as well as the vc nut that you most likely stripped. When I did this, I stripped both the stud and nut:Oo:
I swear there was something up on the forums for how to remove that bolt, but I couldn't find it with a quick search. I do remember the pictures though, looked like the guy was using a breaker bar with a section of pipe to increase torque/leverage. Be careful when doing this though, you might put too much torque and snap the bolt off. Did you try any penetrating lubricant? *snicker*Got the valve cover off BBBBBut.
Still trying to replace the timing belt.
Can not get the crank pully off.
I got the honda tool and have tried using it.
With a breaker bar.
This bolt is on so tight.
Would an impact wrench work better???
Im really at a lost.
Ive been trying for like 5 days to get this bolt off.
preludes are full of win. I bought mine mid december and why i was only able to start driving it last friday! Transmission failure ftlhaha. This bolt is bending me over and raping me...
Rather the whole car is laughing at me.
Has the car a month and its only ran 6 days.
