Maybe you can poke a drill hoe in the bottom of the rail and jam a screwdriver in there against the nut while you give it as many unga dungas with the air gun as it'll take. Godspeed.

Thanks Curtis.


I came up with a new plan.  I'm just gonna drill through the existing hole right through to the backside of the frame and put a piece of 1/4" plate there with a nut.  The bolt will pass through both sides of the frame + plate and a washer with a nut.
I think this will be better than cutting and welding.
Not a lot of clearance on the backside between the frame and the oil pan.
Any one see a flaw in my plan?  or does it sound doable safety wise?   headscratch

I installed a new lower control arm today on the Santa Fe. Got everything on no problem except for the last bolt.
The two front mount bolts go into the frame to a nut welded to the inside of the boxed frame.  Went to tighten the last
bolt and got it almost tight and 'snap'... the nut broke loose.
Fugged around for an hour trying toget the bolt to tighten or come out. It did neither.
Now the only thing I can do is drill a hole in the backside of the frame (if there's enough room to get a drill in there) just
big enough to get a socket in there to hold a nut.  Or cut the sides of a square, peel back a flap and weld the nut or
hold it with a socket then bend the flap back and weld it up.
Not looking forward to this but the only other option is a new front sub frame. ugg..
Had to take a break to stop myself from throwing things around the garage.  Also had to watch the hockey game.
It's just about 10:00pm but I gotta get it done tonight. Tomorrow's my birthday and the wife has plans for tomorrow.
Why's it always gotta be the last bolt?  why am I so soft in the middle but the rest of my life is so hard?
