  • How to remove this bolt to install my radiator.

    I want to remove this bolt that is in my radiator. All it does is spin with the nutzert or whatever it is called.

    I'd try to grip the bolt with a narrow pair of pliers (locking type if you have them) and then turn the nut off. Liquid Wrench or similar is your friend here - presoak the threads with it.

      I can't get to the nut so that will not work. Looks like I will have to cut the bolt off.

        Which doesn't solve the problem. The once captive nut needs to be captive. A radiator shop can remove the side panel, get the bolt and loose nut off, install a captive nut and put the panel back on.

          Tacoma screw or anyone selling aircraft type fasteners should have nut-serts. Or since it's going to be off the car you could tack a nut to the sheet metal. With the nut-sert you will need the installation tool, tack weld might be cheaper.
