    Posted: 11 October 2005 at 5:25pm

So i managed to get the alloy diff fences installed and used the philips head screws that they provided instead of the TORX ones that was with the plastic diff fences.

Anyways, in an attempt to remove it, i ground up the head and now there isn't a + anymore. Just a big O.

How should i go about removing a screw like this?

Thanks a bunch..

If you have a very small drill you can drill it out.

You may be able to use a file or a dremel tool to put a slot in it as well. Then you can use a flat screwdriver to back it out.

this may sound a little extreme but you could glue or weld another intact screw on top of it and unscrew it that way

that dont sound extreem, thats one of the ways ive done it, just superglue another screw ontop, dont try to drill it out, you will just drill the head of it off and then have the thread stuck in there, id glue something on top. or try to force a flathead one in there, the metal isnt that strong so you might be able to just by pushin it hard make a new slot for the flat head. the screws that came with my allow diff mounts have done that =P

If you can get a small engenerring file and scrape a groove in then get a flat head screw driver onto it....
