For those who follow the thread you will know about the broken gearbox bolt I have had for a while. It’s causes a massive vibration through the car when I lift of the throttle after spirited driving.
Last night I went to my mechanic after hours to sort that issue along with an oil & filter change aswell as looking at a leaking washer bottle.

We drilled it using a left hand fluted bit hoping it would catch and undo but no luck. Had to go in with a easy out which we nearly gave up on as it was FT but we used a cheater bar and managed to get it out.

I’d sourced a of couple replacement bolts for that mount from people breaking 1*2s.
That was put in and a back up nut put on the backside just for extra security.

Had this bolt snapped before or was that another chap with a boosted Clio?!
