Help with tranfer case skid plate please
I am trying to remove my tansfer case skid plate and two of the six bolts just spin. it is like the nut inside the frame has broke loose.:banghead:

Any ideas?

Yes the nutserts are notorious for spinning...
You'll either have to cot them or try to pry the skid while loosening the bolt.
Here's a thread about replacing them

Prying did not help. A Facebook friend told me how he has done it and it worked well for removal. A chisel pounded between the frame and skid. Now to follow your link for replacement.
Thanks for your help.

I am dealing with the same thing. Except Im cutting em off and then doing some weld work to hold the skidplate up.
