Stripped Front Skid Plate Bolts

2 posts in this topic

I would like to change the oil myself on my GX 470. In order to get easier access to the filter I understand that it helps to remove the front skidplate. Two bolts on the plate appear to be stripped, they spin round and round but never come out. I have heard this is a common problem and there was a service notice out on this issue. Has anyone else faced this and is there a solution?

Sounds as if an oil change grease monkey was overly aggressive with an impact wrench. The existing bolts are probably 10mm. The nuts on the chassis are press-ins, and probably not easy to replace. You may be able to drill them out to a larger size and re-tap them to an M12, and buy M12 bolts.
