Sheared handbrake surround bolts

Recommended Posts

Hi. My friend and are idiots and managed to shear off the two bolts which secure the plastic handbrake surround to the floorpan.

For future reference I understand we should have tightened them slightly before unscrewing.

I have heard you can remove these by gripping a protruding other end from under the car instead of drilling them out - can anyone advise as I can't get under the car very easily right now.

Any advice/experience would be awesome 🙂 Thank you.

Centre punch it, drill it out use an easy out or left-handed tap, Idealy spray it with GT85 or similar (not WD40) and let it soak over night
