When I bought the car someone else had already done the passenger side and the new drivers side was in the trunk. Well it was in the mid 40's today so I fired up the salamander heater in the garage and went at it. Expecting to have to cut the bolts I got the bolts from work (I work in the parts dept at a gm dealership).
Well the bolts didn't need cutting. They came out. At 291,000 miles. Michigan Car.
