the service manual indicates the proper torque specification @ the nut, not the bolt, which implies that the nut goes on last, therefore comes off first!!dryart wrote:G35TR, have you tried removing the nuts first, rather than the bolts?
It looks like there is enough room to get a box wrench or a socket onto the flange nuts.
Also, a heat gun to warm up those fasteners may be of benefit.
the service manual also specifies, both in symbols and in text, that the nuts & bolts should be replaced, not re-used!!!
RTM more carefully
P.S. It's amazing, when you think about it, how much load those little bolts & nuts are subjected to . Be sure to use OEM hardware for replacements. You do not want them to fail .
