Hi all,

I am trying to install a hitch from Coastal, and am having a heck of a time removing the bolts holding down the tie-down brackets.

I am using a 14mm socket and a Dewalt Impact Wrench w/ 375ft/lb of torque, and those puppies still doesn't want to come loose.

Any suggestions or recommendations??

Thanks in advance!

Ed

There were pretty tough for me, try using a small hammer and tapping the end of the wrench. Lightly though! Like small chipping pattern...you know what I mean. :wink:

Ok....finally got it.

I had sprayed some WD40 around the bolts, and let the Impact Wrench "click" away (when it rotates beyond its torque capacity). After a few tries, those darn bolts finally came loose.

Thx!
