    Problem removing EGR Valve on 2010

    8mm bolts didn't know for sure the nut was welded to the bracket; but not surprised. I put a lot of torque on the 8mm bolts and it would not break loose. Hard to believe a heat gun would get bolt hot enough but guess anything is possible. I know Ford used RED LOCTITE on brake caliper and...

    Problem removing EGR Valve on 2010

    I can not get the two 10mm bolts holding the EGR valve to budge. Even have a 14mm box end on back side. Have soaked with two different 'nut busters' spray, still not budging. Scared I am about to strip the bolt heads off and then I will really be scr_wed. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Stuck caliper bolt.

    Stuck caliper bolt.

    still stuck Thanks for suggestions; tried the mallet and wrench - wrench is slipping off bolt. Also heated up bolt with propane torch for about a minute - no luck either. Would an impact wrench possibly help (or hurt?):(

    Stuck caliper bolt.

    HELP! Attempting to change pads and rotors on my '06 XLT; I can not break loose either of the two 17mm caliper bolt (drivers side). Have tried PB pentrating lube, no luck.
