trying to take out the carpet due to my ANTS problem. to see what i mean by ants, http://www.grandamgt.com/forum/showthread.php?t=85338

anyway, this bolt holding in the chairs needs to come out to remove the carpet , right? and putting a wrench on it wasn't working. it was stressing the hex head to the point of discoloring, and it would snap if i keep on.

got beneath the car and there is no nut accessible from the bottom.
if a box end wrench won't do it, it'd be stupid to try the torque star.
how have you removed seat harness before?

patience is a virtue

mine just came off with a socket, but dont rush it u take the chance of striping it, maybe add a little heat to it

I've used a torx bit on those before. Think it is a T-50 or something. It is kinda hard to get a wrench or socket on since they kind of rounded the top edges and they don't hold very good. Try a 6 point socket and press down real hard. If that slips, then I'd say try with two people. Have one use a box wrench on the outside, and one use a torx bit on a ratchet. Between the two you should be able to break them loose, and after removing them once they won't be so hard to get out again. :thumbs:

6 point socket did it well. the t50 torx did it even better.
thanks all

An impact driver is a wonderful tool.
