How To Remove a Bolt Seized in a Bushing Sleeve
This problem happens often on Hondas, especially with the front lower strut attachment where the fork meets the lower control arm. In this video I show my methods of removing one of these stuck bolts going through the rear lower control arm on my 2012 Honda Odyssey. This bolt needs to move in order to align the rear wheels on these vans.
I also go over my techniques for dealing with this issue when a bolt seizes into the lower control arm bushing on the front suspensions of some Hondas.
I hope you find the information useful. Good luck!
