Normally I would use a Dremel to cut slots into the bolt heads and use a standard screwdriver to remove them, but the area is too tight for that. I thought about using a drill bit to drill the heads off, but how do I remove the rest of the screw? I wonder if once the heads are off, if the studs would be easy to remove. Does anyone have any other ideas on how I might get those two bolts out? I hope I won't have trouble with the 4mm bolt holding the lines in. Thanks in advance.
I had struggled with the two torx screws on thermostat, first timer.
The design was such that the screw did not thread at the hosing cover, just passes through it. And then it would screw into the lower housing. Thanks to Ozark Lee for this info.
I was successful with the 1/4" left-handed-drill-bit, making counter-clockwise rotations to help it pull out at the same time, using oil to lubricate. Choose a bit size wider than the shank.
