so i tried my hardest to get this off. I couldnt!!! Is there a trick? It wouldnt budge. And i have an 02 bonnie, and its the one up top before the cat. I may be a woman, but dang, i couldnt get it to budge.
If you are replacing it, try some penetrate oil like BreakFree or WD40. You may have to soak a few days. Hopefully you are using an O2 socket or wrench. If this is the first time replacing it, you will definitely need to put some brute force into it.
I just did my SEEi and my Monte SS within the last month.
The Bonne'* came out really nice, but the Monte'* put up a fight. I ended up crawling up on top of the motor, put a longer rachet on with a taller extention and braced myself for the inevitable impact after I got it loosened up. The scars are healing, and the Monte'* never run better.
so like everyday for maybe3 days put some maybe liquid wrench on it? Should i just drive regularly as well? Would that be fine? and then after a few days of using pent. oil, try to get it out? I talked to someone and they told me that i may need to re thread it since it is a PITA to get out. And how hard is it to rethread?
