    2008 Nissan Altima rear passenger wheel

    Long story short
    > Tire kept deflating for no reason
    > Tire center couldn’t fix it because of two stuck lug nuts
    > Mechanic helped me break them off
    > Bought new studs and lug nuts to replace
    > Need to remove caliper mounting bracket to replace studs, but the bolts holding them are rusty or just on too tight
    > I have tried a regular breaker bar and ratchet but its really tight in there, and even with the breaker bar I wouldn’t be able to get the right angle to put a cheater bar on it
    > What tool should I use that can get in really tight spots and put a lot of pressure to unscrew the bolt?

    Heat is kryptonite for rusty bolts.

    Good hunting
