Hi guys,

Trying to take off my transmission pan and one of the T30 torx bolts stripped. What's the best process for removing this stripped bolt? Thanks in advance.

hammer a standard 6 or 12 sided socket over it. If it's female, then hammer an allen in it.
This is the best method for these particular bolts, beware of the one at the right front it is prone to snapping in the casing, (the one below the Connector plug).

If real tight warm the casing area around the bolt with a good hot air gun or small propane torch, mind the plastic bits :wink:

HTH
