Unibody bolt hole stripped! Sign In

Hello I am currently replacing the engine cradle/front subframe on my 1999 honda civic.There are 3 bolts for the bracket that holds the control arm bushing in place. These bolts slide through the bracket, up through the cradle and bolt to the unibody. One of the bolt holes in the unibody is stripped. Whats the best course of action to fix this and securely fashion everything together. Thank you!

The first thing you want to do is change your user name before you get spammed to death.

There aren't a whole lot of solutions for your problem. These nuts are encased inside the frame and there is no way to replace them. Maybe someone can cut out that section of frame and weld in a new section.

May not be worth it in that year car though.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
