    I am in the process of pulling my engine out. I am wanting to just unbolt the k-member and pull it out from the bottom but have run into a snag. One of the back k-member bolts loosened up fine, to a point, and now it just spins. I can fit my finger in and it feels like the nut that is usually held by a retainer clip has sheared off. It just spins and I have no way to secure it to back the rest of the bolt out. I am planning to just cut the bolt head off and remove the engine/k-member then go back and fish the bolt out. I am open to suggestions if there is an easier way but I am also wondering is there anywhere I can get a replacement retainer clip? The clip goes inside the frame rail and houses both retainer nuts for the back two k-member bolts.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the reply. I found the front retainer as well but it is not correct for the rear. I did however come across one on eBay and last night was able to cut the bolt to free the k-member up and lower the engine out. Thanks again for the reply.

    Yes, I was able to track down the part I needed on eBay. Trouble was they are not re-manufactured so I had to track down a used one.
