Need help/suggestions
Currently I've got a grounding kit sitting in my garage but I am running into some problems on the install.

I can't for the life of me get the top two bolts off under the battery tray. I've sprayed WD40 on them and they still refuse to come off. Everything else came off easy these two feel like they had impact gun to install them and I'm at a loss of what to do to get them losse.

IF anybody has any suggestions I'm all open.

Using a socket wrench. it's just rediculous how tight this is. It feels like they used a damn impact gun to get in there.

get a breaker bar. it has a really long handle and is made to loosen stubborn bolts.

or if you have a ratchet with a good warranty, like a craftsman, stick a long pipe on the end to give you more levrage. if you break the handle, just get a new one but don't tell the guy you put the pipe on the end lol

the torque wrench does have a long handle but i really don't recommend using it since you can discallibrate teh torque wrench that way.

you an Ocaandy do make excellent points... but this is a solution if you dont have a pipe and realy just want to get the bolt removed at any cost grin
