Re: Partial headliner removal?

have you turned it in and out a few times after adding PB?
How far away is it from coming out?

Yes, it is stuck at the 1/2 way point. It was like this when I got the car. Seems someone already tried and left it this way.


I only get an 1/8th of a turn in either direction before it binds.

Re: Partial headliner removal?

sounds like you might be drilling it out...

Yeah, worst case scenario. I will keep trying until the phillips strips out and then I may grind the edges of the head square and try to get a socket on it. Otherwise, drill away..

That will probably work out ok. PB Blaster is designed to creep its way into the threads. Usually you face the threads down though, so I don't know how well it will work at an upward angle. Good luck.

Give it some time too. PB BLaster for a couple of days gently turning in and out.

Re: Partial headliner removal?

Good news! After spraying PB blaster on it and getting it to turn 1/8 rotation back and forth, I was able to move it 2 full turns!

The screw was getting pretty stripped so, I grabbed it with some vice grips and I was able to keep working it back and forth.

After a few minutes of working it, I kept spraying and turning and it finally came out!! I put some anti seize on the new bolt and I'm back in action!

New Morris seatbelts finally installed!!

Re: Partial headliner removal?

Guys, FWIW there is an electric impact driver tool (like the Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver that I have) that works 1000 times better than the kind you hit with a hammer. I use mine all the time and it's great for driving screws into wood, metal, etc. I have had a few frozen screws on my car and it took them right out. You use your strength to push the bit into the screw which minimizes chances of striping the head. The tool does the rest. One of my all time favorite tools.

I have that drill. I tried it on this and it wanted to strip it. I tried the hammer one with a 5lbs sledgehammer and it wanted to strip it too. I just kept soaking it and turning it a tiny bit back and forth each day and it eventually went.
