Tools that have rusted can be cleaned with a piece of steel wool without ruining the finish. A product called Liquid Wrench can also be used to clean rusted tools.

I find a wire brush is usually enough to clean threads.

A cutting torch is one answer.

You can try soaking it in Vinegar.

Use pipe die on worn threads if you have enough room for die to fit. If not, clean threads with wire brush.

Most of the time it breaks off and you will need to drill it out and replace screew.

NO you cannot heat as any flame can cause a severe explosion and the very least crack the CI fitting The threads have to be cut out gently and possibly re tapped

Bad news. I have found it impossible to remove the bolt caps without breaking them. They are mortared on. They do make plastic bolt caps in a lot of different colors.

Lug nuts are still on, wheel is rusted to the hub.

Your going to need to get a special puller if its rusted on, usually if its new or not rusty you can just remove the bolt and hit it with a hammer a few times and it will come right off but if it is rusted then you should get a crankshaft dampner puller

Rusting bolts normally indicates that the bolts are brittle. Taking a pair of water pump pliers and squeezing really hard will most of the time break the rusted bolt so you can remove the toilet seat. Otherwise depending on the type of toilet seat installed, you can drill a hole right through exactly where the rusted bolts slot in, so helping you remove the toilet seat.

You can try spraying the rusted parts with a penetrating oil like wd40 or a product designed to loosen rusted on bolts. Let it soak for a bit before trying to remove. In my experience a big hammer is big help.

I dont think you remove the nut in the center of the hub, your rotor is more than likely just rusted on to the hub.

probally if not to bad rusted with a wire brush if really bad rusted use a wire brush hand grinder wheel that is what helps me in when i have to weld rusty metal

User Avatar

I just replaced mine, rotors had rusted away. Remove caliber, mine were rusted to the wheel hub, had to pry off. cleaned old rust off with steel wool, new rotors slid on with no problem

You can try spray lube like PB Blaster, but if its badly rusted a torch to heat it up is usually the only thing that works.

You may have to cut them off if they are too badly corroded to be removed.

User Avatar

If they are beyond repair, I cut them off with a thin metal cutting disc in an angle grinder.

User Avatar

brake drums should pull off if not rusted on.

unadjust the rear parking break.... or the rotor is rusted to the axel.

Believe it or not, the best way to remove rust without purchasing Naval Jelly, is to mix some water into molasses, apply the result to the tool, and let it sit a day or two. The results are astonishing. The rusted item must be free of grease and oil.

It is possible to remove rusted bolts from an automobile water pump using a product called Liquid Wrench. Spray the solution on the bolts and let sit for a few minutes. If this does not work, wait 8 hours and then use a torch to heat the bolts.

This has to do with an old bag which was given to me. And I do not wish to damage the bag because when I try to free up the zipper, it is so difficult as the zipper slide has rusted. I am trying with soap before I end up at the bag repair shop.

After removing the center bolt that secures the blade the blade adapter is just a slip on piece that has a key. However, most Blade Adapters will be somewhat rusted on. It is advisable to apply a penetrating oil such as Blaster or Corrosion X on the shaft and allow it to run down into the adapter for an hour or so. If necessary you may have to use a puller to remove the Blade Adapter. If so, it is advisable to use a longer bolt that bottoms in the engine shaft or some other means of keeping the puller screw from damaging the shaft threads.
