Damaged Turbo Bolt

Help! I have spent all day trying to remove a rounded off turbo mounting bolt. (of course, the back one) I've had zero luck. I've tried two types of "bolt extractors" from Sears, and neither work. I think if I could get back there to tap on the top of the extractor so it would bite into the bolt head it would probably work, but I sure can't get a hammer back there.

Anyone have any tips, or suggestions I could try?

Please don't kill the messenger here. You have benn trying to get your extractors to fit on the rounded mounting ear not the head of the bolt.
In 03 and early 04 the rear mounting bolt comes into the pedastal vertically not horizontaly.

The first one I pulled I did the same thing fought it for a full shift, indesperation I finally pulled it pedestal and all. When I got it to the bench you could clearly see all the scratches on that ear where I had been try to get wrenches,sockets and extracters on it. Bolt head pointing straight up in the air just laughin at me.

Thanks Dannyboy, I'm going to try and get my phone back there today and take a picture of what I'm dealing with. My next question was going to be if it was possible to pull the turbo out with the pedistal still attached. Thanks for letting me know it is possible.

IIRC 2 of the bolts will be a bugger, you can only get on them from one angle and will be able to turn only 1 flat at a time.

I have found that a good inspection mirror and light is a necessity any time you are working around the turbo. Such as Lowe's Home Improvement

I'm happy to report that I finally got the last bolt out after a LOT of cursing. I ended up getting one of the bolt extractors to work. Unfortunately once I opened up the turbo, I found a TON of damage. I'm going to start a new thread to ask people's advice on what to do next. Thanks all
