Body mount trouble

I am having difficulty getting the rusty bolts out of the body. I am really having trouble figuring out how to get at the front mount under the grill. The other "problem child" is at the rear corner near the exhaust. This one is totally enclosed, looks like I'll have to cut some metal to get at it if nobody has any ideas.

Re: Body mount trouble

My front one under the grill was spinning in it's cage last summer. I took the cover (the rubber one) off and cut a hole in the top of the cage with a holesaw, just big enough to wedge the rectangular "nut". Most of the other ones are accessible one way or the other. The ones above the rear axle can be accessed by prying away the sheet metal in the wheelwell (at the bottom, where it meets the channel) and wedge a large screwdriver in the channnel to stop the nut spinning. For the other ones in front of these, you'll probably end up cutting a hole in the floor of your tub to get to them. The rear one can be a b$tch. Mine came out so I can't help you on this one, but you'll prolly have to cut in there to get to the nut as well.
