    just for future people.
    i tried to hand chisel it loose, vice grips. nothing worked.
    vice grips where only able to grab the washer.

    What you need to do is get an air hammer with V chisel and it'll spin itself loose
    then use vice grips on the damaged head.

    this is the bolt that needed to come out.
    a crowfoot worked on the right one but left one there was no room.

    Those cone shaped bolts without heads are security bolts, the head breaks off after they are tightened. I usually slot them and use an edged tool to unscrew them.

    BMW calls them fracture bolts.

    trying to remove pedal assembly

    hey i'm trying to put in new bushings for my pedals but
    can't take the assembly.

    it's a 90 airbag car idk if that matters.

    looks like i need to drop streering shaft to get to the last
    two bolts because it is impossible to get a spanner on there.

    See those bolts? there is no head on there to unscrew and drop the shaft.
    how can i do this? the nut on the back looks like it's welded on.
    thanks for the help i'm stumped as shit right now.
