Stripped Hub Assembly bolt. HELP Sign In

2012 cts awd sedan.

Been trying to remove the three bolts holding in the hub assembly which needs to be replaced. The problem is the location. theyre in a very very hard to reach tight spot. I broke 2 of them loose, but the other one has been stripped after trying so many times to get it off. I bought a deep offset wrench set which wouldve worked off the bat but its slipping since the bolt is stripped. Even small name brand vise grips with curved head is slipping. I dont know what else to do.

You mean the head of the bolt is rounded off? You could try hammering on the next size smaller socket onto it. If that doesn't work, you'll be grinding the head of the bolt off.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

You might do better to remove the knuckle and work out in the open before it gets damaged worse.
