I always say this and no one ever gets what I'm saying or where it's from, glad to know there are others out there that find humor in this and have made a comic to go with it

Oh and who else besides me read that in the accent that it was said in the movie?

Drill it out maybe? Or get a pair of vice grips and clamp it on there good'n tight and see if you can break it loose like that. I'd try that before drilling.



I started using my TQ wrench when putting my lug nuts on. Watching Raymond have so many broken studs along with me having a couple myself, not to mention snapping a lug off before. I use 90ft.lbs on mine. I have noticed that different cars and trucks require different tq ratings, like a big ole camper home said to use 120 ft/lbs of tq on it's lugs, when in doubt check the manual out.

All if I get a torque wrench then I'll try the 90-96 setting.

I think Raymond and Zab have found that anything below 80 lb/ft the lugs will come loose.

Thats not good. Use a Bolt Extractor kit. Sears has them. I have had good luck with Irwin and Craftsmen sets. You are gonna need a BIG Breaker bar to do this too. The Bolt Extractor should dig into the rounded bolt and break it loose. Worse case. Get some WD-40 and drill center of the wheel stud and break the threads off the bolt. Then you are gonna need a new wheel stud and bolt

Here is what the kit looks like.

His motor mount bolt not the lugs on his wheels. A bolt Extractor would work perfect though I have never used one.

Yeah, the extractor sounds like a good idea. And thankfully it is a bolt on your motor mount not your wheels ... I ran into that issue. NO fun at all, especially when the AutoX wheels are stuck on the car.

Yes, Zab and I have found 90-100lbs/ft works best.

When it is below 85 ... you get a funky wobble that isn't noticeable, until you take a turn a bit hard. Just a bit. Then you hear slight metal scrapping and your handling gets funky.
