Re: [DML] Penetrating oil, or how to remove really corroded nuts



I was facing the horrible and expensive task of replacing my
evaporator core due to it being frozen to the accumulator (corroded
nut).  I shot it about twice a day over the course of a week with PB
Blaster (penetrating oil) and it came off with relative ease after
that.  I didn't try to remove the nut during that week, so I don't
know how much of my soaking efforts were overkill...  but I'd just
recommend giving it more time to soak.
