And you don't want to use a pliers because this will damage the threads.

So let me show you how to remove these. So first, i like to spray some penetrating fluid right where the stud and block meet now as that's soaking in there grab two nuts and thread them on the end of the stud.

    Only Chris knows how to make everything look so simple! 🤯 Thanks for the tip!

    Good tip. Never reuse these. They are torque to yield -they stretch a bit on installation and need to be replaced for a rebuild. ✌

    Removing studs or a stud reputation doesn't seem like a common thing to do. Best of luck guys!

    Would placing the nuts closer to the block help from twisting the stud and breaking if their seized?

    Where are the videos you used to do, explaining how to repair entire issues? I only watch YouTube on a computer and these very short upside clips are entirely useless to me and not one inch entertaining either. I don't watch them.

    If still struggling ? Heat block with heat gun and spray stud with plumbers freeze spray 😉 . There is a special tool for this , it's a socket with lots of little discs in that grip the stud without damage .

    What if you already tried pliers and vice grips completely ruining the threads on the bolt and still can’t get it off? Please I need help. I haven’t been able to drive my car for 4 months

    Great tip .. thanks for the video. Nice of Youtube to show me your new vid instead of hiding it. lol

    Also you can tap the end of the nuts with a hammer to shock the threads and stud if it is frozen. And if it doesn’t want to come out easily try turning it further in slightly to get the stud to move and then turn the stud out.

    Your videos make me wish I had become a mechanic. I'm a mother of two young daughters and I told them that I want them to grow up and get REAL jobs, like a mechanic or an electrician!
