That's a fun one - door check strap bolt broken off

Gurus of the defender kind. Fun problem ahead. Removed door check straps for painting and few repairs. And as should have expected, one of the bolts that attaches the door strap check to the bulkhead lost its head. And nicely deep in the bolt. So pretty much screwed and have to drill out. Anyone ran into this problem and how to replace that bolt inside the bulkhead?? Thank you for any ideas.

Ha. It's getting more fun. Now extractor broke inside the bore made for it. Back to square one. Damn. If I end up having to drill out the whole thing. Is there a way to get at it from the back to replace the nut?

Rivnuts are one of my favorite inventions.

Great call! Never used one. Clearly missing out. I will give that a shot. Thank you all!

I'm guessing you're talking about the smaller bolts that hold the door checker in place because the bigger bolt has a nut on the engine side of the bulkhead.
The small ones already use a rivnut in the bulkhead cavity.
Just drill out and replace with another rivnut.


edit/ now I see that's been rec'd- ha ha
