Try vice grips or bash a slightly smaller impact socket over the top so its tight.

If that doesnt work-

Cut the top of it off the bolt. Remove the head then use vice grips or 2 bolts working against each other to undo it.

I tried bashing a size 13mm socket but the bolt is to big.
The bolt is still has that "seal" on it. So i dont think i wil be able to use vice grips.Might go tackle it again with the WD 40.

Try some penatrine down the side of the bolt, give the bolt a couple of sharp whacks on the top and only use hexagon shaped sockets and spanners on it.

I had this problem when removing my fuel filter recently. The 14mm outlet nut threaded so I soaked it repeatedly with WD40 then the next day i filed down 2 parralell sides to 12mm and it came off easily.

WD40 it many times and leave it over night

Please don't say Gator Grip.

Buy a good Single hex socket.
Heat it up and or hit it.
Resize it for another socket.
Weld a Socket to it.

Drill it out or cut the f**k off!

Ive filed it down to a size 13mm.
I used a milti hex socket at the beginning. Thats how it got de - threaded/round.
From now on, ill be buying the single hex sockets. Stupid me! But i learnt my lession.
Tomorrow im going to buy a size 13mm socket for the impact driver. Hopefully it wont break.


Ive also learnt something....
Ford build tough,




But not from a file and elbow grease. :lol:

Worse case is that ill try to cut the bolt off. :cry:

Get a quality high speed drill bit and some drill cutting compound. Makes a huge difference
