406 handbrake drum problem.

Post by Woody1 » 11 Jul 2003, 22:30

I have a 406 2.1 TD. Its fitted with brake discs at the back and a handbrake drum. Do any of you know how I release a tight top mounting bolt which should come free with an Alan Key but won't?

Maybe a tube over the end of the key might help giving an extra bit of leverage?.. or maybe a sharp hit on the head of the allan bolt to maybe crack the threads, or try tightening the bolt slightly to again crack the threads... if not careful application of heat from a blow lamp, but be careful with it as blowlamps and exposed flames are a bit dangerous.. say no more... have a fire extingusher and another pair of hands available if possible just in case???
hope it helps?
