Security bolt extraction on ecu
« on: August 11, 2013, 12:19:25 PM »
My power steering has failed I\'ve tried all the connections so next port of call is the power steering ecu that sits under the main ecu the only problem is for the thatchman approval there fixed with snap of security bolts I\'ve tried the screwfix Bolt extractor but it snapped so I was hoping someone has experience with these but I will say I don\'t want to muller it as I want to put it all back the way its supposed to be to keep the thatchman thing.

I think the only way to get them out is to drill out the bolts and fit new thatcham ones.  Not sure where you\'d get them from though.

Apparently putting details of your car spec in your signature means the nice folks on exile-rotorsport think you\'re a fool.  I can think of no higher compliment!

Should get the bolts from Mazda I think?
