Stripped SC torx - How do I remove it?
What at nightmare! I was reinstalling my SC and torquing the bolts. While torquing the bolt that is near the thermostat I stripped the head. I am figuring that the socket was not on properly. Now the head is mangled and I am unable to remove it. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what to do???

Cut the head off that bolt with a dremmel...remove other bolts...pull SC...take vice grips to cut bolt and remove...maybe?

Go to your local tool store & purchase a stripped nut remover. Worth their weight in gold.

I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. had to cut the SC'r off and send it to Jerry to have a new cover put on. I tried everything to get mine out and spent over 6 hours with no luck.

Sears Bolt-Out kit. I got my motor mount bolt off with it after I broke the head off.
