Default Re: I don't know what could possibly go wrong next

I went to autozone and bought a 30 dollar thread repair kit with the inserts. I ended up just removing the whole mount and bracket on my car without removing the stripped mount bolt. The annoying part was reinstalling it as i had to keep maneuvering the engine so all 7 bolts for the bracket would line up together. If i ever need to change the mount, ill then invest in the 25 dollar bolt grab sockets, but the mount is fairly new and passes the pen test.

I got the hole threaded and put in the insert. The only thing is the stud wont go all the way down in the hole. I turned it as much as i could but its extremely tight and locked in. Even though the stud is higher than the other two still, it's in there tight and the car doesn't shake anymore.

As long as its in as far as you can get it that will be good. The helicoil will tend to screw deeper in the hole till the taper causes it to lock the stud.
