      Control Arm (loose bolt inside the subframe)

      I have a 2006 wave that the horizontal bolt that is welded inside the subframe has come loose and the bolt speered off. Any idea on what I need to do the replace this. I have no access to the nuts as its was boxed inside the subframe.

      Unfortunately you will need a new sub-frame. They are super easy to do.

      If you are a welder, have a friend with a welder, or know a shop that is willing to do off the cuff repairs, they can cut open the subframe and weld a new nut in place. Then weld the sub-frame closed again. I had a local shop willing to do this repair for a couple bucks rather than replacing the whole sub-frame. Keep in mind, any shop that does this may have you sign a waiver so they have no liability if it fails.
