Star Bolt Replacements

Hey, Does anybody know where I can find replacements for those star bolts. Specifically the bigger stuff like the ones used on the windshield. Or does anybody have a good way to loosen the ones I have on there. I would like to make that stuff functional on my jeep again. (Catchin' bugs in my teeth sounds like a blast) Any ideas would be appreciated I don't want to have to drill all those bolts out and replace them but if I can't loosen that old stuff up I don't see another option. Thanks in advance. Happy Trails.

start with quality tools. you should be able to get them out with a real torx socket. craftsman is minimum, professional brands are better. but, if the windshield has never moved, which is likely, chances are the hinges are gonna be seized. they were on mine, i sprayed and worked them for months, and finally cut them off when i need the dash out.

good luck

It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
