there are little nuts inside the running boards. if the bolts get over torqued, you can spin them off and then the bolt and nut will just keep spinning. i bought a set of used running boards for my KR and got rid of the plastic ones. when i was installing my "used" boards, i overtightened two of the bolts... i learned the hard way. not sure of a way to get the old bolts out other than grinding them out.

Okay thank you. But if you grind them there would be no way of putting new bolts on.
