Default Nut for right forward subframe bolt broke free of weld

Was changing out an A/C compressor and the nut on the frame broke free causing the subframe bolt to spin. Very fortunate I was able to find an old school welder that had a wire welder to re-secure it. The window is too small for a fat/clumsy mig welder.

I used a small grinder and made the opening a little larger so I could get a wrench in there.

Default Re: Nut for right forward subframe bolt broke free of weld

...Same here, just used a wrench to fit on the nut thru the hole, the nut is not welded to the frame, frome the factory, it is inside a flimsy cage that is around it to keep it from spinning , also used anti seize when putting it back together, DC.
