    Question Hlep - Broke An Intake Grate Bolt

    Long story short I broke the head off the last bolt I was tightening down. I guess it got cross-threaded somehow but they all seemed tight so I didn't think anything about it; should have known better...

    What is the best way to go about fixing it? Extract bolt & rethread or buy a new insert? Please tell me what tools and/or parts I'll need.

    Thanks in advance guys,

    I was scared about doing this to. When i did mine i made sure that the first couple turns when in by hand then wrenched it in.

    Is any of the bolt sticking out or is it Flush with the inserts?

    You def need the center bolt. You may be able to tap it but you could also drill 2 holes on either side & tap for the M6x16, OEM, size.

    I was able to repair mine with a Helicoil insert but I don't think that would work for the center bolt.

    Good Luck.

    I tried mine back in the days with the helicoil and it did not work too good. Dont know why why it came loose once and then broke the rideplate
