    i was trying to remove the rear exhaust mount on my mk2 ph1 but the bolt keeps turning i think the nut on the inside of the chassis leg was spot welded on but the weld has broke and i can see no way of getting at the nut anyone any advice of how to cure this problem?

    When I changed my rear exhaust mount there was no nuts, the bolts just screwed in. If it's just spinning then it may be rust on the other end of the bolt stopping it from comming through. Trying soaking it in wd-40 and then work the bolt in and out.

    You can normally just rip it off, then replace it with a normal nut and bolt.

    but the way the chassis leg is ya cant get a nut up in to the top of it. it looks like the nut has been spot welded on before the chassis leg was welded together

    I am 99% sure mine didn't have nuts, there were just 3 rusted bolts.....one broke and I replaced it with a nut and bolt with no problems.

    Try and take a pic of the said problem and we may be able to help :smile:
