So my jeep is going to the garage for the winter, where I plan on taking different parts off, fixing them, and putting them back on.
The first section is my tailgate, but one of the torque bolts on the hinge is striped. So I get a cheap bolt extractor, and it breaks INSIDE the drilled out bolt.
What the hell do I do now? I returned the crappy extractors and got some better ones (hopefully they won't break so quickly) but when I try to drill out the hole again I can't get through the original broken extractor which is in the way.
Do they make drill bits that will go right through hardened metal? Has anyone taken their tailgate apart, can I take off the inner panel and somehow grab the bolt from the inside with pliers or something?
Any suggestions appreciated. I just want to fix up my YJ!!
