factory steps
Iam trying too put my steps back on and the incerts in the frame are turning and i can't get the bolts out. I tried too use a punch to indent the incert on the sides into the frame, didn't work any help would be great. My wife is tired of climbing in. Please help

won't work, the step bolts are in frame. I put them there so i wouldn't lose them, Now i need too put the steps back on the incert turns when i try to back out the bolt. Even if i cut off the bolt heads the incert would turn when drilling.
