Hi guys. I hope someone can help. I'm trying to swap my nearside driveshaft but have run into a snag. A previous owner has rounded out the multi spline bolts on the lower wishbone making them impossible to remove. Has anyone ever experienced this and are there any thoughts on how I might be able to get them out? Thanks.

Can you get a decent set of mole grips onto it? Or try the cold chisel technique?
Not sure of access but maybe file/grind a couple of flats so you can use a spanner.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I think I will try the chisel technique. But failing that tools today do a stud remover tool that iv never seen before. But I'll try the free way first.

Thanks guys. I did exactly that. The whole job took me about 4 hours over 3 days. But it was worth it in the end. Oh for the love of rusted bolts.
