Are you sure the nut broke free? What happened to me is that the screw BP provided was a little smaller than the nut and it pulled the thread out. The screw was not broken and was free, not because the nut was free (although it felt like it was free) but because it had no thread.kokopop said:The nut broke free. I have no idea what offroad tapped into. I haven't looked. I was just thinking of trying to fish the nut out and weld a wire to the end of it.
