Hi all,

I’m trying to get the collet bolt out of my 17 patrol to tighten the main pivot and it seems completely stuck. Nothing seems to want to get it to budge. It was greased liberally when I last had it out and tightened to spec.

Any suggestions much appreciated!

Have you tried an impact driver ?

I had this on my '17 scout, it's quite common apparently. I got it out in the end. I spent a few minutes levering it side to side and it eventually came loose. I used an allen key but something softer would have been a better idea. A pencil or something. Then grease it when it goes back in.
