I'm trying to remove a vent window on a '51 3100. The issue is a rusted bolt, the one at the bottom of the division channel, it's inside the door panel and must be reached through the lower hinge cover door. Tried using an open end wrench as well as a socket with an extension but just can't seen to get much torque or spray it with Liquid Wrench. The bolt has to be in the worst possible place! Any help is appreciated.

Try to get some penetrating oil on it if you don't and you crank on it they sometimes twist right off. Spray and go away for a day or two.

....soak it, rest some, soak it and then try to tighten it just a bit. Then it'll back out or twist off.

I had one to twist off but once i had the assembly out it was easy to get it out and re-thread the holes.
I had rather the bolt twist into than the nut to twist! ugh

..but it'll try your patience for sure. Oh, and it helps to sit on the ground and twist you big arm just right to get up in there. I had "marks" on my arms for a week!

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
