RE: [DMCForum] Re: removing side skirts pain?

Most of mine were rusted but would turn a little, and some snapped off.  The
OEM plastic rocker panels are very easy to rip as I found out.

You could cut the heads off with a Dremel and then saturate what's left in
PB Blaster, let it soak, and see if they will come out.

A local owner went through this so I will ask and see if he has anything
else to offer.

dam this sounds like a pain in the ass. Im thinking of just breaking 
off the head and drilling the screws out and tapping new threads. I 
cant believe it. I have nearly taken out every bold out of the car 
and none were as hard to remove as these sam things,.
