Broke a torx screwdriver in a recessed hex bolts. Removal?
So I was tinkering with the rear suspension of my new GT LTS bike, where I'm going to fit a monster 8.5x2.5 Fox RP shock in place of the standard 5.25x1 shock.
When tightening it back up, I learned the meaning of "the right tool for the right job"
I used a torx driver instead of a hex key, and it snapped inside. At this point, I don't know how to handle it. I've tried all unobtrusive methods that I know of. Melted hot glue, magnet, banging on the opposite side with a center punch and hammer.. nothing freed it. Problem is it's twisted, and that's holding it in.
I figured i'd ask the pros for advice.
I'm thinking I may have to drill it out, tap it with a left hand thread, screw that in, and screw the messed up bolt out. Then my only problem is finding a replacement.
