Rear fender allen bolts?
I've purchased a luggage rack that bolts onto the rear fender. You have to remove the two stock hex/allen bolts and use the ones provided with the luggage rack.
The hex bolts are 6mm (I think...whatever it is, the wrench fits snug) But I can't break them loose. I REALLY pulled on the wrench, but the hex bolts won't break loose. I'm afraid I will strip the socket. I'm pulling so hard I'm bending the wrench.
So I figured I'll get my socket set out, and use that from underneath, while using the allen wrench on top. It turns out the nut underneath the fender (both) has been welded/soldered to the fender. Just enough where I can't get my socket over the top of the bolt. But considering it's been welded/soldered...I don't think I want to break it loose in the first place. That leaves me with just the hex bolt on top of the fender....but I can't break it loose. I suppose I could put on gloves and/or use a small breaker bar to give the wrench some more leverage. But I just don't think it should be this hard. I feel like I'm doing something wrong. I thought about some liquid wrench, but there's no way to really get it down to the nut area.
