rear tire hugger bolt question..

so im trying to take the bolts off of my rear hugger (07) . 2 of the 3 bolts came right out but the left rear one will only spin. if the bolt snapped it should pull, or twist right out i would think but no luck . any thoughts?

try lifting up a little bit on the hugger right where the fastener is while loosening the fastener. Maybe it'll catch a thread. Sounds stripped.

It may be spinning the nutsert that it screws into. Try to tighten the bolt first to compress the nutsert (kind of like a rivet) then unscrew the bolt.

Can you take a peek under the hugger and see if the nutsert is turning?

The insert did the same thing on my bike.

You need to either grip it with long nose pliers or try and jam it with a screwdriver/chisel to stop it twisting as you undo it, easier to get someone to help.

I have always known this type of insert to be called a 'rivnut', we use them at work on aircraft.

I borrowed the tool we putthem in with and re-tightened it up so all is good again.

Maybe able to take it to a garage to get it tweaked or a new one put in once its out, either that or get drilling!

Same thing. Some call them Nutserts and some call them Rivnuts.

One way how to install without the tool.

alright so i took another look. there is no way for me to stop the nutsert from spinning because the bolt is covering it. i guess that means i have to drill the bolt out so i can get to the rivnut.. do i just use a drill bit thats slightly smaller then the diameter of the threads or is there a good way to drill out a bolt i dont know about. thanks for the help ! every project i try an tackle has some stupid problem like this to figure out and i know nothing :)

small needle nose is how ive done it or needle vise grips. But yea get a bit as close to the diameter that you can. To where your scraping threads would be the only way unles you can drill out the center of it to where you could figure a way to stop it from spinning by going through the bolt to the back side but doubt that would be likely to accomplish in your case

If you wanna save your hugger when drilling.... drill the screw like a rivit so the head pops off and you can get your hugger outta their with no damage.. but after that take your time drilling have a good new bit preferably and remember its not about speed when drilling but to have nice constant pressure and use some type of oil so you dont burn your bit up GL
