Hello, I accidentally tightened my side panel bolt too much and it snapped. Half of the bolt is in the threads and there is no way to get it out. i looked at the frame and noticed just the bar that holds the thread to the bolt is detatchable. Does anyone know where i can buy a new one or how to fix it?

well ya got a couple choices.
1. drill and tap for a bigger bolt
2. easy-out the bolt thats there
3. get a set of REVERSE-DRILL bits and try to get it to come back out
4. drill,tap, HELI-COIL or TIMESERT the hole (personally i would go with the timesert)
good luck
