A Little Help Here Please

I'm trying to put relocation brackets for my mirrors on my 95 and not only are the torx stripping the one I can get to turn won't back out.
Does anyone know if there is a nut on the backside of the bolt?

Yes there is a bolt on the backside. They are not easy to get to.

thanks Kjconn.
I also need to replace the 2 clips on each side of the tailgate that hold the top down.
Does anyone have a link to where I could order them?
Been looking online and calling junkyards but I'm having no luck!

The upper hinge bolts in the windshield frame don't have nuts, they go into a threaded backing plate. That won't spin, but the bolts are tight as a bitch. The lower bolts that go into the body/cowl, have nuts on the back side that seem to only be held on with panel sealant. Even worse is that they have thread locker. They are almost guaranteed to break loose and spin. And it's a real bitch to get a wrench up there with the dash in place.

The easiest way to do it is pull the dash back. It's actually a piece of cake, just undo the large torx bolts on both sides, then drop the window forward and undo all the small torx bolts just forward of the upper dash pad. Without unplugging or disconnecting anything at all you can pull the whole dash almost a foot back. The drivers side I just rested on the steering column, the passenger side I had to have a bungee hold it up. Just be aware when the wiring harnesses are stretched to the limit. You'll get plenty of access to the nuts. I heated them up with a propane torch and they loosened right up with no problem.

Oh hey this is a repost and I re-answered... lol.
