[DML] Re: Stuck Screw Holding Washer Reservoir Basket

It's always a pain when the rivnut turns in the fiberglass because the
screw is corroded into it. If you can hold the rivnut with a plier
what usually happens is you either strip the head of the screw or you
break it off. About the best outcome is just to grind the head off and
after you get the cover out drill out and replace the rivnut. Consider
yourself lucky, only one is giving you trouble!
