Exhaust cover removal problem
Being lazy, I took my SS to a local reputable dealer to have new tyres fitted.
Not a Duke franchise so I gave the mechanic the handbook info for removing the cans before you can get the wheel off etc.
Unfortunately, even using Snap On tools, he has managed to strip the Torx screw head on the inside of the cover, so its now stuck in place. We tried several different ways to free it and failed.
He now wants to tig weld a nipple onto the end of the screw to get some purchase on the screw to turn it. This seems reasonable (you can't get a drill in the restricted position and the screw is stainless, so will be difficult to drill out anyway) but can anyone see a reason not to attempt this?
