Removing Headlight for bonnet light switch - Where to go next?
I need to change the microswitch for the bonnet open light switch and in order to do this, the headlight needs to come out. I started this job a few days ago - when I turned to undo the nearside bolt, the nut underneath (which I believe should be welded in) sheared off meaning the bolt just turns along with the nut underneath!! Any advice on getting this bolt out?
I've taken off the bumper, applied a lot of WD40 and can only get some pliers to the nut but I don't have the grip to stop the nut still turning with the bolt when the socket head is put on... Very frustrating!!
