Door check bolt spinning


Recommended Posts

Was replacing the door moulding and weatherstripping on my ‘01 LS430 UL. Was removing the bolt for the door check on my 3rd door so that I could install the new moulding. The bolt broke loose but then just spins without loosening. I have tried wedging a screw driver between the bracket and the body panel to create tension so the bolt will spin, but no luck.

Anyone else have this problem? I’m guessing the nut was tack-welded to the inside of the body panel. Can I get access to the inside of the panel with a wrench to hold it?

Thanks - unfortunately though, the bolt that is spinning is the bolt that attaches the door check strap to the door hinge Pilar and not the door.


Any advice for this dilemma?

I’m not sure removing the inside pillar cover would allow access. Was hoping someone could confirm that doing so would allow access before I take it all apart.
