    Of course put a socket over it and BURN THE FRICK OUT OF IT RED HOT. Then take that MFER OFF. Then nudge it a bit in the opposite way, then the way you want. It works for a lot of things.

      As in quite literally take a torch to it with the socket on it? Haven't seen this before. Quite a bit of rubber components around. Seems a little sketchy.

      Just shoot the fricker off, it’s not like you Americans don’t shoot at everything.

      Wow man thanks. That was such a great help. I hope you have a nice day.

        Strip the rubber then make a new sleeve. Burn it then.

    soak in PB blaster several times while tapping it with hammer. spray and tap over and over again. you want the tapping to get the vibration throughout. wait over night after soaking well in pb. tap tap tap. then use a long bar and gently pry at it careful to not turn it. if you turn it, just drill it out and use a bigger bolt. if its metric you can use standard which will be slightly larger.

    Penetrating oil, tap it with a hammer, blast it with a torch, use short rapid movements in each direction until it cracks, use anti-rounding sockets (they're great actually, worth the cost just in saved bolts). Those are all your options without breaking something.

        Clip the fricking wire and make a new end. I'm sure lots of mechanics do that. OBV you don't have power going through it. Just snip it, move the good part of the cord away, and fry it to death. Then quickly TURRRRNNN with an impact socket. I wouldn't zip it yet, just make sure it turns, and again a little in the opposite direction.

          I'm replacing all the cords. That's the point t of the whole operation. I'm sorry, I'm learning. Most people not already auto intelligent also would question torching a bolt while it's still attached to the block, I would think. I really do appreciate the info

            dude.
            a wrench is trying
            a breaker bar or cheater bar is asking niclely.
            finally, it cant stay stuck with its turning to liquid.
            if your op that b***h looks rounded off, you're fricked. break out the torch, its time to stop asking it to come out.

            I've pulled those off with PB, heat and an ruined undersized socket.
            maybe a 50/50 mix of acetone and AFT if you're desperate.

          Yes, the ground keeps your electronics from getting feedback by grounding everything to the chassis. To bridge a circuit you always need power and a ground, the ground completes the circuit without it you get nada and on vehicles having everything ground to the chassis/ engine is how you complete the overall circuit.

          I've never had one not crack the bolt loose. You'll have to replace the bolt when you get it out, but if it was rounded enough you had to resort to these then it shouldn't go back in either way.

            I've got some absolutely seized nuts on my downpipe and I'm considering grabbing a set of these extractors. definitely won't attempt a reuse if I can get them off. thanks m80

            Give them heat and lots of time to soak with penetrating oil first too.

          yes. It will ruin the bolt but if you're using one of these the bolt is starting to round or is ruined anyways and you're at the point you just need it off !

    Frick that shit - find another bolt, nearby, that's going into the block and bust that one loose, instead. Any ground point will do. Whatever you're doing, be careful not to smack into the knock sensor next to it - they can get damaged by a good rap.

      Hmm, I'll have to Google what that is. This is an h3 that is known to have connectivity issues with its power and I decided to just replace all the cables instead of just the terminals since I wanted to sell it possibly. Make her nice and pretty. Been straight forward so far but this guy is a problem. But it was a reason to buy myself a nice new pretty angled rachet!!!

        The black round thing, with a bolt stuck through it, to the right? That's a sensor that detects when your engine is knocking and dials the power WAY down. They're only about 45 bucks, but depending on the car, they can be a b***h to get off. Yours looks pretty straightforward. Toyota 4cyl's? Not so much.

    vise grip, grab the bolt from the top and let the protruding jaws grab the wire. since its a ground it wont matter if the wire turns with the bolt. grab it really tight and one swift blow with a hammer to break it free

    of course its rounded because a wrenchlet such as yourself cant be fricked to use the right tool for once in their pathetic little life.

    clearly not cause its fricking bone dry you moron.
    now its rounded off, good job.
    spray lube on it, and then either try taking it off with anice pair of channel locks, or mash a smaller socket on it.

      Yep I am a moron. Which is good because cars seem like a moron job. So I am at home. I'll go grab a set of rounded off sockets since I am moron. Why be mean when can be nice? You guys are insufferable when the entire society looks down on anyone who fixes their own car. Like why? Let's be friends. I don't hate you for working on your car. But apparently you feel better than other people because you have literally nothing going on in your life.

        becuase we all hate ourselves and then we project our hate into others.
        before you waste money on rounded off sockets, try a smaller socket, or a nice pair of channel locks if you have the room to get a good grip there.
