Broke the bolt on left side at the number 6 point (last mount before the rear)while installing scott mueller lower body bushings. All the other points were installed successfully. Will this cause any problems with that one bushing not in place or will the others be enough to hold the body down on the frame? Not sure how drilling it out will be so I guess we'll see...:confused:

Thanks in advance

I think you can get to the top of it if you cut through the trunk floor above the bolt.

I haven't done the bushing bolts but when I changed the front suspension in my daily driver Escort out one of the a-arm bolts broke off in the frame(1/2" wide by about an inch long(actually M12x25mm long)). I ended up just drilling the bolt out with titanium nitride coated drill bits and tapped the hole with new threads and threw a new bolt into it. However that will only work if the bolt is directly threaded into the frame. - Peter
