Anyone experience a cross-threaded seat bolt and successfully resolve without extra damage?

are the seat nuts just threaded plastic or are they metal inserts embedded in the plastic?

Are you saying its stripped out, or the bolt is stuck in the seat?

Thanks for the reply.

I have never had this seat off before but it looks like a metal insert in a plastic seat pan (2nd owner, stock seat). The bolt just spins with enough angle. I'm ready to order up a full seat next paycheck and rip the old one out from the top. A shame but I can't even install my new tail rack....

The Bernz-o-Matic might be the next attempt.

I would try spinning the bolt with a power drill, or impact, or something with speed, while firmly lifting up on the seat with my hand. Basically try to pull out the metal insert out of the seat.

Once apart you could use plastic epoxy to install a new insert or just run the seat with just one bolt.

Spinning the bolt at high speed freed the insert from the plastic pan. Thanks! I think the heat generation helped or did the trick.
