Haven't made a specific post for a while

Any Ideas how to remove this? I want to remove the turbo return and this bolt has been stripped for 2 years now

Access is quite tight so a normal socket and torx wont fit in there. I can get the short side of an allen key torx in and that's about it

Cheers for the advice everyone

I do not have a welder in my inventory currently (on my christmas list) so may have to go with trying to get a slot/flat on the side to hit with a hammer or get a grip on.

As mentioned above, I would approach that with a long, skinny, sharp chisel and use a heavy lump hammer to get the initial movement. It's on the block so once turning, it should unscrew with your fingers. Good luck!

Or drop the ball joint and slide the driveshaft out the way to gain access to force another torx-socket in there.
I thought this last point as a last resort but the less I have to disassemble with this, the less problems I will cause! :LOL:
