  • [Wanted] Mobile Mechanic services

    Just bought an '06 Miata and had a whine in the belt tensioner. With ham-handiness, I snapped both bolts off trying to replace.

    I know there are some skilled guys here who might be able to drill the bolts out/helicoil or know someone. Any recommendations appreciated. Not interested in towing to garage because car is torn apart already but might not have any alternatives.

    Thanks,

    Is any of the bolt sticking out? can sometimes weld a nut onto the stub and turn it out.

      On one of them there is a little nub sticking out, the other one is pretty flush. Probably will need to have it towed to a shop.

        Right angle drill, then an easy out. I would probably drill, then soak with penetrating oil (pb blaster) then heat, then use an easy out. You CAN do it.

          Been soaking in PB Blaster a few times a day since Saturday. No torch or right angle drill, will have to think about that. Just don't want to make things worse.

              In my garage - near McGinnis/Peachtree Parkway.

              Got a referral from someone local who is supposed to come look at it Thursday.
