RE: [DML] Re: Torsion bar adjustment


If you've never re-tapped a thread before this area is not the place to
learn. If you want to keep the same size thread you will need an 8mm
"time-sert" thread repair kit at least. You must also be prepared for the
stripped weldnut that is used at this spot to possibly fall off if the welds
have been compromised. At that point you will need to cut open the roof and
weld in a new nut. To complete the repair you will want to weld the seam you
cut, for access to weld, back together grind and refinish the repaired area
to avoid water entry and rust. The repair can get involved very quickly so
you may wish to give this job to a professional. Just a heads up to
consider...I don't mean to sound discouraging but thought you should this
information before you start!

Hi again folks,

OK, there's a problem. One of the bolt holes on the passenger side is
stripped beyond repair. We relieved all pressure on the torsion bar
and now I have to figure out how to fix this. I'm guessing it's "tap &
die" time?
