    This is hanging off the underside of my car :(

    It looks like the bolt has sheared but I am unable to get the other side of the cover off

    There is a hole in the under try but it is smaller than the diameter of the socket needed to unscrew the bolt!!

    Anyone any quick ideas or drawing on how to get this off?

    thanks

    Wow I had that too! I took it to my local specialist tuningwerkes and they bolted it on there.

    They said the expensive way around it was to take off all the carpeting underneath drivers seat and do it like that but obviously £££!

    I think I made a thread about it, i'll search for it now.

    I'd be more concerned as to why the bolt sheared in the first place.
