Accessing SMJ - Removing the Cover Fastener; Is SMJ for Real

TWO RELATED THREADS STARTED BY THE SAME MEMBER HAVE BEEN MERGED.

Hope this post will not offend too many analysts.

There is a large , black, plastic screw type fastener holding the cover of SMJ.
These fasteners have a tendency to brake when NOT used correctly.
I can loosen it turning clockwise , but ...

THIS WAS MY ERROR - IT LOOSENS TURNING COUNTER-CLOCKWISE.


HOW do I get it OUT to be able to remove the SMJ cover WITHOUT BREAKING THE FASTENER ?

Removing SMJ cover fastener

OK, I posted this is wrong pew .
Definitely dumb....

I need to remove SMJ cover to gain access.
It is held by one of those screw out fasteners , black about quarter size , which will break when not handled properly.

I can "unscrew it" - turning counter-clockwise but still cannot get it to let go without force.

Any "fast(ener)" reasonable hits will be appreciated.

Apparently it's Super Multiple Junction. But I don't know the answer to the OP's question.

One of the few references to it on this forum:

Fellas, that would be the SUPER MULTIPLE JUNCTION. Part of the power distribution and grounding system.

Sounds like something found in the flux capacitor, but I'll trust you! I learn something every day on this forum..

SMJ fastener

Perhaps this may help to deter trolls.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it is the one on the driver's side floor/kick plate area? I saw the picture you posted in the DUMB Question Thread and poked around the X.

This is the only thing I could find on it from another thread:
Quote:
After this is removed the Black Side Kick Plate which protects some wiring has to be removed. There is a big Flathead screw that is Plastic that you have to remove. This will completely unscrew out of place. Do not pull on it or u will strip the threads. Then pull on the front part of the Kick Plate which has two Metal Connectors to release the Kick Plate. Now you have full access to everything.
Now in this thread you say clockwise, the other counter. If you did go clockwise first you may have stripped the threads already.

This may not help, but I'm one of those that will keep turning until I say F-it and then pry and pray. It's only plastic.

It might help someone else help who has some experience with that area...I saw people were confused in your thread.
